Breakfast At Nettle Hill

I’m sitting here with good friend, Mike and Helen Frye (Be The Centre), Nathan Horner, Dave Mitchell, Chris Whitelock and Pete and Mary Ellen Fitch enjoying a cup of coffee and connecting at a heart level (no we’re not; we’re just jabbering).

Mike feels as though Brit music rocks. Helen feels as though Canadian music rocks. You must hear Jodie Jones, their daughter, at

Great time with the Vineyard UK songwriter’s gathering. We leave for Oxford in a few moments for the next WIW event.


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.
