FY100 06: InResponse Question

These posts (that start with FY100) on my blog pertain directly to the students in the 06 course FY100: Leadership In Contemporary Worship Practice at St. Stephen’s University. From anywhere you are in the world, feel free to jump in and join our class conversation.

We have a fantastic class (our first session was rich and honest), and are going to have a very worldview-shaping, passion raising, hidden treasure time together.

There are approximately 11 students (including our 3 Institute One Year Diploma students), and we began our work worshiping together, analyzing the worship set/experience, getting to know each other, and reviewing the FY100 Syllabus.

Our first InResponse question, to be posted by the students by next Wednesday on this post, is:

“What did you love and hate, find helpful and unhelpful, about your own worship experiences through your faith journey to date?”

Answers will be posted by Wednesday. Click “Comment” below, and dive in. We welcome others outside of the class to answer the question as well, and to join our conversation. It will only enrich us and our class.


Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help 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. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. 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.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
