Introducing: Hewit

Another friend introduction seems fitting for today (even if they don’t have a blog).

HEWIT is a band made up of some dear friends and musicians I’ve had the privilege to play with, pray with and laugh with many times through the last 15 years.

Each member is incredibly skilled and talented, and they come together with a brilliant sonic/lyrical synergy.

Many labels have been courting them lately (Sony and others), and they’re committed to being Kingdom people in the midst of culture.

If you’re tastes are even remotely like mine, you’ll love their work. Click the Hewit Player on the site to listen.

Joel, Brad, Tony, Curtis and Darryl — keep your eyes clear and your hearts true.


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.
