In Memoriam: Robert Webber

Special thanks to Sivin Kit’s site for the image above of Robert.

Perhaps no one person has further advanced the cause of the ancient-future worship paradigm in the Church than the great Robert Webber. After a battle with pancreatic cancer, he has passed before us, through the night, into the Day.

His influence will have repercussions for generations to come. His life’s work will continue to shape and inform all that we do at the Institute Of Contemporary & Emerging Worship Studies at St. Stephen’s University.

As you read this post, please take a moment to pray for Robert’s wife and family, and for the community at Northern Seminary.

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.
