The real work!

Words are the real work of the world – prayer words with God, parable words with men and women.

If you haven’t read any Eugene Peterson, get reading him!  This is from ‘The Contemplative Pastor’.  I love his take on the world: this is the kind of pastor I want to be!

  1. Chloe, have you read/come across Peterson’s ‘Working the Angles’? John-Paul Lotz made us read it for 3rd year Pastoring; thoroughly recommend it as an addition to your (undoubtedly increasing!) stack of reading.

  2. Hey Tim, thanks for commenting and nice to see you on the blog. Yes, I think that is my favourite of all the ones that I have read: it’s great, isn’t it?! Any others of his that you particularly like?
