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.

    Thank you.


    Amen, John.


    Thanks for today’s devotional.


    Thank you, enjoy your devotionals!


    Most hearty Advent greetings to you.


    Thank you, John. We always appreciate your devotionals!


    Thanks. New meaning to TGIF. Great way to think of Sunday.


    John,
    A very encouraging devotion. Thank you very much.


    Amen, John. Eventually, we shall all see Jesus either with fear and trembling or with overwhelming joy! Blessings.


    Thank you, John, an encouraging devotional: what an inspiring way for the pastors to tell people: “it is Friday, but Sunday is coming”.


    O thank you John for another magnificent look at God’s promises and help! I always smile when I see your name on the devotional.


    Thank you, John. I often wonder if I would have recognized who Jesus really was if I had lived on earth in Bible times. Thankfully, I meet with Him now!


    Thank you! this goes with our sermon coming this Sunday… God’s timing!
    My father used to use that saying… it’s Friday now but hang on, Sunday’s coming! It has always lifted my spirit! I haven’t heard it since he went to be with the Lord several years ago… so I was blessed to see (hear) it again. I think I am going to start saying.
    Thank you very much.


    Greetings John,
    Many thanks for this very mindful devotional today. Yes, Sunday is always a special day to gather with our church family and give praise all together to our Lord and mighty Saviour. He is ever present to us and definitely deserves our praise at any time and any day, but we do feel an extra joy worshipping with our fellow believers. Blessings for these special writings you do.


    John Stuart, I enjoy your devotions. I have enjoyed them for many years, and they always talk to me – in my language. They always give me that ‘feel good’ feeling at the start of my day.
    So many times, as I read along, I feel lifted and ministered to, and then when I get to the end of the devotional, I can’t help but smile as I realize that once again it is John Stuart who is speaking to me!
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your words of faith and encouragement.


    Good morning, John,
    I have often wondered if I had been alive at the time Jesus was on the earth if I would have recognized him as our Saviour. I do not know the answer to that question. It is a similar question to the one you ask, except if Jesus appeared now, we might know of his life before and be more prepared to “run ahead”. Of course, I still could not say for certain what I would do.
    Your devotional makes us reflect and think. I can see the value in the words “It’s Friday – but Sunday’s coming!” because at times we all need the hope that Jesus has saved us from our sins in order for us to be righteous and can have a close relationship with God. The hope of being with Jesus at the end of our life on earth is powerful. I love your expression of “cheerfully” pray because many times I pray more seriously, and I should be more joyful.
    May you continue to inspire us and the song “We gather together” fits your message perfectly. Blessings.


    Thank you, John, for your daily devotion of today.
    Yes, ever since I was very young, I enjoyed running ahead to see who ever was coming down again.
    I remember our Princess Elizabeth when she visited Canada as a Princess newly married; and I remember the Pope when he visited Canada.
    In fact my brother and I even followed the crowd into the cathedral and listened to the service.
    It was in the evening, and they passed out rolls of bread to all who came and we, who have not had supper, enjoyed one each.
    When Jesus was moving about, the crowds gathered and followed. How privileged they were to see and listen to his teachings.
    Today I read as much as I can from all the stories, that scholars have written that they have done some research on those times.
    I have had the honor to have been able to read, though I was a lousy student when I was a youth.
    The privilege I have today is to tell the same stories to our youths in our community (Sunday School and Youth Groups) of how we have been blessed with his coming and died for us.
    I enjoyed all your submissions and look forward to reading them.
    Thank you and may God bless you,
    (Quebec Canada)
