Blogging By New iPhone

The new iPhone App for blogging is now live. Technology has once again progressed to the point of putting one’s every waking moment online – in more than 140 characters.

I’m hoping this app gives me a bit more flexibility as a newbie ‘one-fingered blogger.’

I will now hit Save on my iPhone, and see just how ‘wired’ I know have become.

Truth is, blogging moments often occur when I’m not near my laptop. For example, right now my wife and I are spending 1.5 hours wrestling over mobile phone plans.

They are almost as complex as using a PC – somebody fix that!


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.
