Masters Module – The Middle Ages

We’re in our next Masters module here, in full swing. Worship leaders, artists and pastoral influencers from different streams gathered in one place, with great food, great interactions and 3 Voice Learning.

Our focus is from Gregory The Great to Thomas a’Kempis this run, and artist Andrew Smith is our special guest.

Today – Walking On Water by Madeliene L’Engel gives foundations for Andrew’s chats on the role of the creative artist in culture.

Must away now – busy day. Just an update on why I’m so invisible in recent blogging!

Coming soon, a vid blog on my trip to Washington DC on “Art And Corporate Memory.”

We welcome your prayers for us.

P.S. If you haven’t watched it recently, The Kingdom Of Heaven (10% Middle Ages, 90% Hollywood) is a good recall of the crusades – even if 21st century attitudes and agendas cover over a true sense of the Middle Ages.


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.
