If Your iPod Has Died…

On occasion we pause this blog on emerging worship to bring you a public service announcement.

Apple will replace an iPod whose battery has died for $59.95 + $6.95 shipping.

It will either be a new iPod they send, or a refurbished one (which will be better than what you have at the non-working moment).

The recall on the batteries only yields a $50.00 Apple Store certificate, and I believe that certificate is only good for store purchases (not support). I’m still waiting on mine.

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.
