There's an app for that!

In this on-line, smartphone world it’s great to see so many resources aimed at helping us to connect with God in prayer and worship, in devotional times and studying God’s word. Literally, at our fingertips there are a myriad of ways to engage with God – there’s no excuse not to pray!

One of my favourites at the moment is called Presence presenceproject.com

Under the tagline ‘music, film, photography and poetry that inspire reflection and prayer’ Andy Hunter and his team of cohorts have created an app that stirs the sense and allows ‘Selah’ pause moments in life. It’s an invitation to be in God’s presence.

Each chapter has a Bible reading, film, poem, music and opportunities for reflection. You can add notes and interact with the different elements. They also have ‘live’ and ‘streaming’ events you can connect with.

We asked Andy Hunter what led him to create Presence, he said “I created the Presence App with the vision of using technology that so often distracts us and switching that up and using it instead to inspire out personal time with God, with the use of the arts”

Sounds good to us! Go on…give it a go!
