Quick Post Before Leaving UK

Our time in Oxford was a blast. I’m staying with friends here, and preparing to fly out tomorrow. It’s late, so I’ll update more on the events later.

It was amazing how well-received these What Is Worship? ideas were — ancient and biblical as they are, yet needing a fresh retelling of the human Story to be awakened in Christians to grasp ahold of them.

We met in a gorgeous Anglican Church — and had rich times of worship and ministry. My wife hurt her back today at home, so please pray for her as you read this post. More later.


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.
