A Day In The Land Of Wee Giants

I was going morning, noon and night since we got here in Northern Ireland, so I haven’t had a chance to update.

The What Is Worship? event couldn’t have gone better. Rich worship times (co-leading with Kathryn Scott), wonderful interactions in the teaching/workshop session, and lots of great times with our Irish friends from Port Stewart and Belfast. Oh, good Guiness in the homeland.

It’s been a blast doing the event with Peter and Mary Ellen Fitch, too. We blend well on so many levels. Playing with Callum Rees, Matt Weeks, Jesse Duley, Claire, Dave and Kathy has been just plain over the top fun.

You make music a tapestry of groove and sonic wonder — thanks for creating a transcendant atmosphere for people to encounter God.

More later. Big ferry ride after the Great Big God children’s event we do today at the Causeway Coast Vineyard.


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
