October is here and to ring in the new month I’ve got great new desktop wallpaper for you to download. This month’s wallpaper was designed by Mark Priestap. I asked Mark to introduce himself:
My wife Meredith and I have one girl (10) and two boys (8 and 4) and we’ve been married since ’99. We live in Monclova, Ohio and attend Peace Reformed Church in Napoleon, Ohio where we’ve been attending since ’09. I’m a ’97 graduate of The Ohio State University and have been working as a designer and front end web developer almost ever since. From 2010 to 2012 I had the privilege being part of the Desiring God web team that redesigned/developed the DG website and created the DG iOS app … and they even let me write some articles. Afterwards, I joined on as the Creative Director of Forge Apps, developer of the DG app and the John Piper Daily Devotional app.
A few notes: Your desktop or laptop may take any of the sizes, depending on your monitor size and a host of other considerations. You can click here to see what your resolution is. Generally you set one of these are your wallpaper by clicking on the link to the image, then right-clicking on the image (once it’s open) and selecting “Set as Background,” “Set as Desktop Background,” or something similar. If you aren’t sure, post a comment and we’ll try to help you figure it out.
Mark says, “These wallpaper designs are in commemoration of how God, despite our stiff-necked opposition to his Law and Gospel, poured out his Holy Spirit on Europe in the 1500’s, opening our eyes afresh to Christ and his gospel, causing the Protestant Reformation. May these help you reflect on God’s mercy and what our terrible hopeless condition would be outside of his grace. Nothing can be added to what he has accomplished and nothing can be added to the Word through which Christ and his benefits have delivered us and continue to nourish and strengthen us! He alone is sufficient and he alone is worthy of glory and honor.”
