Coram Deo: The Event

CORAM DEO (a night of acoustic worship)

…acoustic worship …ancient hymns …contemporary songs …prayers from all streams of the Church, …candles and images, …extended time to linger in the presence of God.

Coram Deo is a Latin phrase meaning, “…in the presence of God.”

Held in church buildings (or other facilities) that are architecturally beautiful, Coram Deo is a night of acoustic worship designed to wed the best of the contemporary worship experience with the worship riches of the past.

Blending hymns, chants, contemporary worship music, prayers and the Eucharist, all enfolded in the aesthetics of beautiful architecture and inspiring environment, Coram Deo is a 2 hour experience of ancient-future worship.

Coram Deo has been especially effective in building bridges between the contemporary worship experience and the liturgical worship experience.

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.
