Who Will Narrate The Story

Within a few weeks, our online course essentials blue: online studies in worship theology and biblical worldview begins. I’m excited about it, because now the Institute can reach across the miles to folks who would find the financial obstacles to come to Canada too daunting.

iTunes U will house all the free content, and after launch, we should have a host of publicly accessible media and material ready to go for you.

It’s a fascinating emerging world in which we live – to see the technologies emerge that can connect the world, and then to see a Story renewed in those who access those technologies that is strong enough to feed the soul of both the Church and the culture – this is an exciting thing in which to participate.

As Robert Webber has said, “Who will narrate the Story?” I’m thrilled for the creative and artistic community to step up to it’s greatest strength and call – to narrate a Story that heals the world. Hope some of you can join us online this summer.

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.
