An Amazing Weekend

Our concert and FaceToFace event went off without a hitch, and was a great success.

Here’s a link to a Facebook video Holli’s sister shot at the concert (we were opening for a few minutes at the start): Video

Many musicians and worship leaders were served during the day, and the concert in the Gothic Arches was just a blast. More later, as the Intensive is still on through this week.

I’ll get some of our current participants commenting on the experience in a post. Then, yesterday, hammered dulcimer artist and Intensive participant Garrett Viggers led worship – a rich a beautiful time surrounding ideas from St. Brendan’s journey by Joel Mason.

We’d still appreciate your prayers – more earth-shattering discussions, worship and creativity going on this week.


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.
