Soon before she left her position in New Zealand as senior lecturer in pastoral theology, Lynne recorded a one-minute video for her departmental website describing what's most important to her in her writing and teaching.
Lynne spoke last year on "Spiritual Practices for Preachers" (recorded as a video on YouTube.) The talk is relevant to anyone in ministry and focuses on how to draw near to God simply as a child of God as well as engaging in spiritual practices for the sake of ministry.
Here are two talks Lynne gave on listening (recorded in audio form on YouTube): Listening for Mission and Ministry and Why Listening Matters for Mission and Ministry.
"Lynne's writing is beautiful. Her tone has such a note of hope and excitement about growth. It is gentle and affirming."

"Dear Dr. Baab, You changed my life. It is only through God’s gift of the sabbath that I feel in my heart and soul that God loves me apart from anything I do."

Short liturgy + reflection/discussion questions on a psalm for each week of Advent and for Christmas Day
My church, Bethany Presbyterian in Seattle, asked me write reflection/discussion questions for a devotional they have used in the past. For each week of Advent and for Christmas Day, the devotional has a short liturgy that can be used alone or in groups. The liturgy includes reading the psalm assigned by the Revised Common Lectionary for each week of Advent. I tweaked the liturgies to fit with the psalm for the week, then I wrote reflection/discussion questions about the psalm for each week. You can download it as a pdf.
If you've never seen connections between the Psalms and the themes of Advent and Christmas, you'll enjoy these reflections.
Advent Week 1 - Psalm 90
Week 2 - Psalm 85
Week 3 - Psalm 126
Week 4 - Psalm 89
Christmas Day - Psalm 96
