The Burning Man Project ::

The Burning Man Festival has always been of interest – it’s a celebration of art, self-expression and creative activism.

If indeed public policy lives downstream of public opinion, once again the role of the creative artist to affect public opinion is highlighted as not only important, but vital.

This year their art theme is based around the “Green Man,” engaging art that explores our connection with the environment in which we live.

I’m sure that much of what happens there may be dubious, but also that much of what happens there has beauty – and the familiar ring of truth.

Art is always prophetic – disclosing both dark and light shades of truth. I’d be curious to hear from anyone who’s been there.

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.
