An Autistic Boy Shines Greatness For All of Us


Who ever said that it was the weak that need the strong? You cannot miss this moment of human greatness. Allow your own strength to be tempered and formed by this boy’s weakness being transformed into strength, and his weakness giving our strength a reason for existing.

It’s a brief video about an autistic boy who suited up for a high school basketball game, just so that he could experience what it was like to play. He showed everyone that greatness is hidden in the most unlikely packages. Welcome to the human family.

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.
