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 Vena.


    Beautiful devotional.


    Thanks for the memories Vena.


    Thank you, Vena, for sharing this experience in your devotional with us. Blessings.


    Dear Vena – I certainly enjoyed your devotional. May God continue to bless your writing.


    Thank you for reminding us of the fact that believers all belong to the same family and that God is with us wherever we travel.


    The title of your devotional is just what I need at this time. I am leaning very hard on the Lord because I had to have my dog put down and my heart is breaking.


    Yes, Vena, I too have experienced the Spirit of God as persons prayed in a language I did not understand.
    Thanks for sharing.
    A beautiful hymn!


    I had an experience like that in Mexico.
    The language was Spanish.
    Your devotional brought back that wonderful service.
    Thank you.


    Hello Vena Poole,
    Thanks for contributing to the PresbyCan Daily Devotion.
    I loved your story and Yes our Loving God looks after us every moment of every day and even uses fellow Christians to bless us along the way.

    This brought up many good memories.
    I was visiting Germany at Christmas and on Christmas Eve I decided to find a church. I found a Church with people going in. Some people approached me and asked in German if I was visiting and I said in both German and English yes.
    They immediately spoke in English and invited me to come in with them.
    After a conversation of where I came from (BC) they lit up literally, as they had visited there. I was greeted and welcome in all languages and felt very much a part of the congregation.
    Being a choir director, I know almost every hymn written. It is so ingrained in me that when I read a hymn I sing it. Thank you for adding Fanny Crosby’s “Praise Him, Praise Him”. I sang along with it.
    Thank you again for bringing up memories for me.


    Good afternoon Vena,
    Thank you so much for your devotional “In His Presence”.
