Introducing: Blair Anderson

I seem to be in a bit of an “artist” series right now, so I’ll go with the flow.

I was introduced to this artist, Blair Anderson, by good friend and sacred networker Heidi Turner. What I may appreciate about Blair the most is her personal story, part of which unveils her struggle to call herself an artist even after 40 years.

Given the recovery in which the Church finds herself, I’m not surprised. The next 50 years of the Church, in my view, will be an exciting season of watching artists who follow Jesus find their honed, singular and highly skilled voice.

Let Blair’s story be a declaration to you if needed – that the artist must continually come forward, no matter the voices within that seek to quench the call.

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.
