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.

  1. PresbyCan Feedback:

    Good advice, Lynne.


    I love your devotions. Many, many thanks for your dedication to this site.
    Blessings.


    Lynne – another great devotional. Thank you SOOO much. This is what I needed today. God Bless you.


    Thank you for your devotion today. It is very meaningful, for me in my personal life and as the world is at present. May God richly bless you.


    Thank you for sharing this encouraging devotional word from the Lord. May our focus always be colored by an attitude of gratitude. Blessings.


    Thanks for a very uplifting message for such times as we all experience. I do hope things get resolved as they are meant to be in time. Peace to you.


    Boy do I need this today.
    Thank you.
    Doing an election issue and its really hard to stay out of a negative space.
    Thank you, Lord, for using Lynne to help!


    Hi Lynn
    Thank you and praying things will turn around for you all in your little town. I also find when I get negative thoughts…it just keeps me down but when I think of positive things and trust God and remember He is in control no matter what things look like it brings hope in my being.
    God bless.


    Thank you Lynne – your devotional led me to the old familiar hymn Rock of Ages and the verse:
    Sometimes I feel discouraged And I think my works in vain
    I’m tempted often to murmur To grumble and complain
    Oh but then I think of Jesus And all He’s done for me.


    Good Morning Lynne, and Blessings in the name of “I Am”.
    Yes, the picture you paint, in dark colours, is the same here, and the brush and pallet are also wielded by the “Indigenous” people’s. It is often called a wedge movement, and it can be very destructive in many ways. I will write more later, as we are just leaving for Sudbury for Ursula’s cancer treatjment.


    Thank you for this devotional Lynne. I know there are no coincidences with God, but your great devotional today, sure struck a chord with me. There is a lot of controversy going on about a place for the homeless in our community and nobody wants it in their neighbourhood. I think the project is very much needed here.


    First I thought, “In a nutshell.”
    Sort of oxymoron-ish considering that my thoughts were on our nation and on my family. God’s word and yours of today apply to the whole spectrum of reality.
    Thank you for being willing to hear and say those words today!
    And, praise God from whom all blessings flow.


    Hi Lynne
    So appropriate for me today. My husband just had a major heart attack and my focus was on the imminent situation, even though he is alive. I got him to the hospital in the nick of time; by the Spirit urging me to take him to the hospital, which probably saved his life. I didn’t see it at that time, but reflecting, I see God’s hand in the situation. And….that’s where my focus should be.


    Thank you, Lynne. Your message today is exactly what is needed right now in the province of Ontario. June 7 is provincial election day, and the leadership candidates (especially the front runner), leave much to be desired in the area of trust and honesty.
    I shall keep your message in plain view as a reminder to be a “Positive Polly” as opposed to being a “Negative Nelly”. If God has brought us to it, then God will bring us safely through the next 4 years.
    (ON)


    Wow, Atlin is a long way up north.
    Really like your many contributions.
    I Googled Atlin, not sure if the controversy is about the Hydro project or the reopening of the mine.
    I’m afraid that money brings out the greed in some people.
    The verse you quote is worthy of all of us to live by.
    Good luck and may God be with you.


    I just wanted to let you know that your devotional touched my heart and reminded me that God is still in control. I have been going through a most trying time, and I received news that saddens my spirit. I have been praying fervently for my family, for forgiveness and restoration of relationships. Prayers have not been answered as I had hoped, but there is still so much for which I am grateful. Thank you for the nudge for me to refocus.
    God’s peace and blessing to you.
