Yarn, Hockey, & Unbundling Christianity

I’m interested in the yarn comments moving below in the previous post.

Fyi, I’ll be out at a hockey tournament with my 9-year old (life doesn’t get bigger than this) over the weekend, so I’ll check back in on Monday.

And… watch in the next few weeks for a spankin’ new Podcast element to the site. With about 1000 unique visitors a month here, I think we’ll have some strong blog dialogue on emerging worship forms. Thanks for joining the fray, friends.

Interesting article on the emerging church over at Out Of Ur.


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.
