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.

    A great story and challenge, Rosemary.

    Thank you, Rose, for inspiring us today.

    Very nice devotional Rosemary. Many thanks.

    Thanks, Rosemary, for this excellent testimony and example.

    Thank you for this devotional…a message for me.

    Inspiring and challenging, Rosemary. A star in your crown! Blessings on your today.

    Thank you for your devotional. May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Dear Rosemary,
    What a super, warm, uplifting and heart-warming story. Thank you for sharing this!

    Hello Rosemary,
    That is a beautiful story you wrote that was published today in PresbyCan. It is so true; we need to always be in tune to God’s Spirit!
    Thanks, and God bless you!

    Dear Rose,
    I am inspired by the way you presented Jesus to this man. Your questions, your responses, and the humor wrapped within made this scriptural message just chime with your willingness to share the gospel. Blessings to your heart for sharing Jesus.

    Hi Rosemary,
    Yes, I do wonder about that at times. As far as going to church is concerned, hopefully when we do, we will hear the true gospel of Jesus brought in an easy to understand, truthful and meaningful way, which I am loath to say, is not always the case.

    Love your illustration of MacDonald’s.
    I have used a similar one of going and sitting in a garage and never being a car.
    A lot of people help the Salvation Army, but as you stated the connection has to be with Jesus.
    Thank you for reminding me to look for opportunities to share the Gospel.

    Thanks, Rosemary, for your clearly worded challenge to ‘be on the lookout’!
    You are so right in many of us assuming people know the Lord who may not but do long to!
    Your McDonald’s analogy is particularly poignant (like Papa Ten Boom saying “Just because you’re in a garage doesn’t make you a car”).
    Well done! Your message reminds me of the song that goes, ‘It only takes a spark’ from a ‘few years’ back. To me, that’s the summing up of your message! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for your reflection.
    I know things are a bit more complicated, but I’ve always felt this is a BIG part of it. To simply accept Him, and then continue to sin, (not follow the commandments), doesn’t assure me of my salvation. (I wish it would). I wish I could accept Him and then continue to do as I wish in life, believing that I am ‘once saved, always saved’.
    Blessings to you,

    Dear Rosemary:
    God bless you! I am always so encouraged when I read beautiful passages like yours. Thank you so much.
    I spoke to a young woman who was cashiering at my pet store. I noticed a bracelet on her wrist, and she said she has an autoimmune disease. I took her by the hands and said I will pray for you. She said, “thank you”.
    God blesses us with so much, including people like you and I thank Him for these experiences that brings us closer to Him.
    Merry Christmas Rosemary.

    Thank you, Rosemary, for your beautiful devotional. I loved your MacDonald illustration. I am sitting here in the living room enjoying the beautiful very tall Christmas and a new big brilliant star reminding me that this is what Christmas is all about as it led the wise men to the place where our Savior was born. How we Christians love that story during the entire year. Praise Him.

    I pray that the man you talked with will really accept Jesus Christ as his Saviour and Lord and get into a fine church where he will grow in the grace of Jesus Christ as he fellowships with other Christians. And may he pass on the good news.
    In Jesus name. Amen.
    Thanks for writing as you did.
