Summer Happenings

For today, just a life update for the summer.

I’m writing in the Perspectives On Worship book for Broadman Holman,

planning a course for St. Stephen’s University in the fall,

completing the new What Is Worship? DVD,

putting together some book proposals,

reading for my masters, fixing my house and

trying not to stress about life turns in the autumn.

Family and friend visits are occuring in a steady stream. The east coast of Canada calls, and we’ll poke our heads into favorite spot, Prince Edward Island again.

I’m also preparing for What Is Worship events in Northern Ireland (Alan and Kathryn Scott) and Oxford this September, and doing some worship development planning for the Vineyards in Canada.

And eating ice cream often. Nothing says summer like a Peanut Butter Cup Flurry (blizzard) my friends. Speaking of which….

Sheltering Mercy 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. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
