Introduction: DeepChurch Blog

Good friend Jason Clark, leader of Emergent UK, and Paul Mayers have begun a blog that I think will speak along a via affirmativa (the affirmative way) in the conversations today on ideas vital to reimagining our life together in the world as followers of Jesus.

Worship will get its treatment along the way, I am sure, and I think many would find this a renewing site to frequent. Drop them a comment or two to get their new concept started.

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.
