Emerging and Emergent: Marc Driscoll

This video is a helpful distinction point by Marc Driscoll on the difference between “Emerging” and “Emergent”. For the many who ask me the stance of the Institute Of Contemporary And Emerging Worship Studies, I’ve had to make this distinction many times.

Drawing from many emerging streams, including some rich ideas in all 4 quadrants Marc mentions, The Institute focuses on emerging Church ideas in additition to its emphasis on culture, ancient-future faith and the role of the artist within and outside of the Church.


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.
