Thou My Best Thought

BY: TYLER BOYER

The hymn Be Thou My Vision declares in one of its verses, “thou my best thought by day and by night, waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.” This book is intended to be a tool that equips the reader to seek out and enjoy the light of God’s presence through prayer, morning, noon and night. Imitating the prophet Daniel’s practice of praying three times a day, this work provides outlines for daily prayers which can be prayed either alone or with others at specific hours throughout the day. Each day includes Psalms to be prayed. The Psalms for the day come from a list of daily Psalm readings that John Wesley provided for use by the early American Methodists. The daily scripture readings are taken from the Revised Common Lectionary for each week of the year. Along with Psalms to be prayed and scriptures to be read, each day also includes a meditation from the writings of John Wesley or an early Free Methodist source.

Urban Shalom

BY: KEVIN AUSTIN + KATIE BERGMAN

As Christians, our own liberation compels us to help liberate others, seeking justice for those who are enslaved spiritually, emotionally, or even physically by modern-day slave holders known as human traffickers. But it’s about more than being rescued from sin. It’s about being healed so that we all can flourish under the glory of God. Our goal is transformation: starting with the character of God, moving into compassionate communities, being rooted in Jesus, and then engaging in God’s mission of shalom where harmful values are shifted and relationships are restored. But we can’t talk about slavery without talking about our mutual brokenness. We must learn from the great physician, comforting and caring for the wounded while we ourselves are being healed.
