  1. Sorry I’m not anywhere near New Zealand. I’d like to do a contemplative retreat one of these days.

    I’ve tried for a few years to encourage people in my church to engage more fully in the Psalms during Lent. To make it easy for them, we have what’s known as the psalm-o-matic, which is an email service that provides a random psalm to one’s inbox every morning (US time). If any of your followers are interested, suggest they send an email to psalms_liturgy@fccr-ace.org and place the words “subscribe for lent” in the subject line.

    I hope it’s ok for me to post here. If not, please let me know…or just delete! 😉

    1. I think that’s seriously cool, Larry, and I will add that to the resources in my post tomorrow for Lent resources. I am a psalm nut – I think they provide a “simulation” and stimulation of and for life. Blessings.
