What is a Feed Reader?

A feed reader automatically checks for updates on websites that the user chooses. The content from many different websites is gathered into one place for easy reading by the user, saving the time that the user would spend visiting all the different websites involved. Feed readers with podcasting capabilities are also able to download media files and automatically load them onto media players like iPods.

What is a Podcast?

A podcast is an audio broadcast streamed across the Internet for users to download onto their computers and portable audio devices.

Subscribing to a specific podcast "feed" enables a user to automatically update their computer with the latest edition of a particular audio broadcast, known as a podcast "channel."

The word podcast combines the words "iPod" (Apple's popular portable MP3 device) and "broadcast" to describe the ability for anybody — from independent producers to large media corporations — to create audio broadcasts to share online.

    Amen, Joel.


    Thank you, Joel, for a calming devotion. Blessings.


    Thank you, Joel, for a very interesting devotional and a very good challenge.


    Nice to hear from you hope you are feeling well.
    Wishing you God’s blessings.


    Thank you for the timely post, Joel! This is a topic I am doing soon with my Sunday School students. God bless!


    Amen and amen! May we unstop our ears! Thank you for sharing this encouraging message with us. Blessings.


    Thank you, Joel.
    Blessings to you,

    Well done, Joel. And indeed may many hear his voice and respond by coming home.
    Blessings.


    You message was so heart felt. It keeps reminding me that God is only a prayer away from being lost. Pray that more and more will call on His name and be saved. God Bless you.


    Hello Joel,
    Your words today also made me remember God’s calling out to Adam in the garden, “Where are you?”. God is a seeking God, as He desires to have us know Him. What a Saviour we have!


    Hi Joel,
    It was good to read your devotion this morning.
    I hope you have completely recovered, and you and your wife are well.
    Blessings.


    Joel,
    Your devotional took me back to the times it was safe to go play all day long, and even our children had that privilege. Our God is so good to us that we don’t need to ever hide from him. What a joy to hear him calling us by name. Thank you for this writing.


    Thanks, Joel, for another of your very mindful and encouraging devotionals. I loved reading about your early playing days as it was like my early days. Now I get to play hide and seek with great-grandchildren, so it is still a fun time! However what is important too, is to encourage these young ones to seek our loving Jesus and be members of His fold and not stray away. Blessings for these very special writings you always contribute.


    Good Morning, Joel!
    Thank you for today’s devotion! Not only because it serves as a reminder that we have a Saviour who is easy to ‘find’ wherever we are, but also the devotion brought forth many memories of playing ‘Hide and Seek’ as a kid growing up on a farm in Ontario. To include one of the good, old hymns in your devotion was like whipped cream on the strawberry shortcake…. coming soon.
    May you continue to teach us, in good health.
    Blessings!
    (ON)


    Joel,
    Thank you for today’s devotional. What a beautiful reminder of the Saviour’s love for the lost.
    I remember as a young child in church that the song ‘Softly and Tenderly’ was often used as an invitation for seekers to give their heart to the Lord. It has always been my favourite song of invitation.
    Your thoughts in this devotion warmed my heart and I thank you for sharing them.
    Abundant Blessings,
    (ON)


    Good morning, Joel,
    I also remember those times of the freedom to decide what I wanted to do and play with my brothers or my girlfriend who lived across the road. They are good memories. My children also grew up with the same freedom because I was able to be home with them for many years and there were still some other mothers like me in the neighbourhood that had children they could play with. By the time my granddaughter came, the world was a different place and became a world of restrictions to keep them safe and of daycare to mind them. Change happens but Jesus is the same. He is there for us comforting us, reaching out for us if we have strayed and just loving us.
    Thank you for reminding us to pray that more people hear His voice and become believers. May you continue to share your thoughts and I hope that your health and your wife’s health is improving each and every day. Blessings.


    Hi Joel,
    Our children seem to think that their 85-year-old mother needs to have help cleaning the house; so, they have found two ladies to come “help.” One of them is the mother two school aged children and is pregnant with her third. When I asked her the other day what plans she had for her children for the summer (my thoughts being…she is working and then what plans does she have). She replied, “We don’t have a television or internet. They go outside and play.”
    When our grandchildren were younger, they would come to stay with my husband and me at our ranch for a week. We were exhausted when they left, but we didn’t “do” television, etc. They still love to come to the ranch even though all but two are adults now, and they get great joy from coming here and being together.
    Times have changed since we were growing up in so many ways. Our Presbyterian Reformed tradition of worship does not seem to appeal to young people now…even those who have grown up in the Reformed tradition. AND. we pray, don’t we?
    Thanks for your devotional, Joel, which obviously struck a chord with me.
