Original Blessing – with Richard Rohr

You’ll enjoy this if you believe that God’s intentions for us began in Eden, culminated in the Gospels, and are on the New Creation progression moving through the New Testament and the millenia since.

My buds over at The Work Of The People string together gold and silver threads in so many ways. This video from Richard Rohr is a new favorite, capturing so much of my own approach to Genesis and the aim of the resurrection.

Thanks to my earth-shaper pal, Adam Russell (www.indigenousworship.com) for pointing it out for all of us to view.


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.
