A Long Holiday

I’m taking a bit of a long holiday with my fam until Jan. 9’ish, so I may be in and out of posting.

Nothing like long wrestling matches, cookie fests, giving things away, and reading stories in front of the woodstove. In the great white North, the snow is thick and inviting. My wife’s folks are with us, and both the fun and noise level are quite high.

We’re missing the rest of our family though, scattered across North America.

Good thoughts over at Todd Hunter’s blog this run.



Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps 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.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. 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.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
