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.

    Such an important word, Diane. Thanks for sharing.


    Hi Diane. Thank you so much. This is another good devotional. God Bless.


    Hi Diane
    Thank you for All your devotional articles. You are a great writer. God has really blessed you.


    Hi Diane:
    Thank you for your beautiful devotional. I couldn’t agree with you more.
    God bless you.


    I relate to this as I live in a highly multicultural area and have neighbours from every corner of the globe.
    Thank you for your thoughtful interpretation.


    Thank you, Diane, for sharing this much needed devotional in a world gone mad with bigotry and violence. Praying for peace and love to prevail. Blessings.


    Dear Diane,
    Thank you so much for sharing with us today. Your devotional ‘How I Became Colour Blind’ touched my heart, and it deepened my desire to be more like God, who looks not on the outward appearance, but upon the heart. Thank you!


    Dear Diane,
    Thank you so much for your devotionals. I have been praying for colour-blindness. My family has those of various races and I never think of colour there. I am praying that this will extend to everyone so skin colour is not any more noticeable than hair colour.
    I particularly appreciate the paragraph that begins, “Surely, Christ is still the only way ….”


    Dear Diane,
    I found your color-blindness experiences very interesting because of an experience I had years ago:
    I once had a life-changing experience of “color-blindness”:
    I was teaching a classroom full of Canadian Native primary children in a Residental School. About half way through the year, I walked by a large wall mirror in the ladies’ washroom and saw that I was WHITE. I was alarmed! In some way, while day after day teaching the native children, I had unknowingly psychologically taken on their color to the extent that I had identified with them. It was with shock that I suddenly saw that I was the one who was different. I think I became a different person and began a new career that day.
    Thank you for inspiring me.
    Keep writing.


    Diane,
    Thank you for your enlightening devotional and its lesson that true “diversity” comes when we cease “to celebrate our differences” and concentrate on what unites us – God’s Grace made manifest in the sacrifice of his son Jesus Christ. When I worked in New York City, I would attend Daily Prayer at a church on Fifth Avenue. It was very fifth Avenue and high church – it advertised itself as Anglo-Catholic – yet the mid-day congregation was the perfect picture of diversity – people ranging from janitors to Wall Street types, of all races, etc. Yet, never once did the priests dwell on or even mention “diversity”. Instead, as the rector once said, they simply “preached Jesus Christ without stammering”. I contrast this with the many main-line churches which boast of their commitment to diversity and celebrating differences yet have the most homogeneous, undiverse congregations.
    As Paul said, we are all made one in Jesus Christ.
