Al Bayne - devotionals cover

I invite you to wander with me on a virtual adventure in the wilderness. Discover the many delights of nature and how they reflect God’s truth. Come travel with me on all 40 excursions. You can take it a day or a week at a time. Your experience can be as close as your armchair and as vivid as your thoughts. Come and wander in the virtual wilderness through these devotions, and linger with the Lord. Come apply some spiritual salve to your soul.

Al Bayne, a pastor from St. Pierre and former teacher in Otterburne has released an exciting new e-book which invites readers to participate in an virtual wilderness adventure while connecting with God.

Bayne, a preacher and teacher, was inspired by his love for wilderness canoeing and the Word of God when he created an eye-catching devotional called Wilderness Wanderings – 40 Nature Devotions.

Produced only as an e-book, Bayne invites the reader to wander through forty virtual adventures in the wilderness.

“I invite readers to wander with me on a virtual adventure in the wilderness and discover the many delights of nature and how they reflect God’s truth,” stated Bayne. “You can take it a day or a week at a time. Your experience can be as close as your armchair and as vivid as your thoughts.”

Bayne has taken his experience as a wilderness guide, a teacher of wilderness leadership at Providence College and a Pastor to create this series.  His first book “Bugs, Sweat, and Fears” (A Beginner’s Guide to Wilderness Canoe Camping) was published in 1999.  He is half-way through a third book called Out of the Wilderness – 30 Power Devotions.

Bayne lives with his wife Barbara in St. Pierre.

The e-book is only $2.99 and is available at:  https://thesnippetapp.com/web/writers/albayne

A Photographic Journey Through Several Continents by Mia Randall

A Photographic Journey Through Several Continents

Combining her interest in Buddhism, travel and photography, Mia Randall presents a collection of images, (including various photographs of Buddhas!), from her travels to Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Spain and Dubai

“By gazing at images of Buddha, we can absorb some of Buddha’s good properties. For example, images of Buddha will often show Buddha as being calm, strong, compassionate, joyful or wise. Or we might find many other positive qualities. So it follows that if we see if we can discern these qualities in a Buddha image, we can choose to consciously develop these qualities in ourselves.
I was taught this by a Buddhist teacher and I’ve practiced it now and again for many years. I really think it works!!”

The only thing that disappointed me about this book was that I did not order a print version (but that will change) – the photographs were breathtaking; makes me want to visit the same places.
