All the ends of the world
Shall remember and turn to the LORD,
And all the families of the nations
Shall worship before You.
For the kingdom is the LORD’s,
And He rules over the nations. Psalm 22.27, 28

Anthony Esolen argues that we’re losing something when we set aside our historic hymns and liturgies. Here’s a review of his First Things article, “Thou?”
Are you creative? Would you like to be more creative? Well, practice looking at clouds and other random arrangements of things. That, at least, is the advice of René Müri and Nicole Göbel. Here’s a brief review of and a link to their Aeon/Psyche article.
One of the best, short works on Christian worldview is also one of the oldest. Crossway has republished Herman Bavinck’s early-twentieth-century essay, Christian Worldview, and it’s worth reading. Here’s a link for a review of this important book.
Do we long to see Jesus? Is it even possible? Our current ReVision series is exploring the question summarized in this Insight.

There would be a lot more evidence of the love and beauty of Jesus in our world if Christians paid more attention to the small stuff of their lives. That’s what I argue in my book, Small Stuff. Our salvation is so great that it takes in all the everyday details of our lives, sanctifies and restores them, and then sets them to the task of glorifying God. But we need to understand how this works, and to encourage one another in all the small stuff of life to seek and serve the Lord. Order your copy of Small Stuff by clicking here.
It’s time we begin thinking about “Joy to the World” again. Our book, Joy to Your World!, not only expounds this great hymn, but shows how relevant it is for us as the Lord’s joy-bringers. This little book would make a great stocking-stuffer for friends or family. Order multiple copies and share them around. Click here to order.

Psalm of the Week
We are happy for you to use our weekly psalm for personal or corporate worship. All psalms for singing are from The Ailbe Psalter. Psalm 22 shows us both the suffering of Christ and the joy that was set before Him. Here are verses 23-28:
Psalm 22.23-28 (Darwall: Rejoice, the Lord is King)
All you who fear the Lord, now praise His holy Name!
You children of His glorious Word, declare His fame!
We stand in awe of our eternal God, and on His mercy call.
For He has not despised the anguish of our King,
Nor from Him hid His eyes, Who knew such suffering.
Let praise arise from all who love and serve the Ruler of the skies!
Then all the poor shall eat and praise with us the Lord.
Forever we His praise repeat and trust His Word.
Praise God above, all you who keep His vows and who His mercies love!
All nations shall repent and hasten to the Lord;
All those to whom His truth is sent shall praise His Word.
The Lord is King! His sovereign rule on high now we His people sing!
From the Celtic Revival
It is when full of charity that one is holy.
He walks in charity.
Every evil fears him;
every good loves him.
He has honour upon earth;
he has glory in heaven.
everyone will love you.
everyone will fear you.
- Colman mac Beógnai, Aipgitir Chrábaid (The Broom of Devotion), Irish, 7th century
Should we fear God? Colman agrees with Michael Reeves, who agrees with Jesus and Paul. Reeves actually helps us to understand this important discipline in his book, Rejoice & Tremble. Here’s a review.
