A new read – add it to your list!

My ‘work’ assignment was to pay more attention to what God does than what I do, and to find, and guide others to find, the daily, weekly, yearly rhythms that would get this awareness into our bones.  Holy Saturday for a start.  And then Sabbath keeping.  Staying in touch with people in despair, knowing them by name, and waiting for resurrection.

Eugene Peterson, The Pastor

What joy I am finding in reading this recently-published memoir by such a great pastor and scholar!  It is all so beautifully written and yet so arresting at times in its wisdom.

When I am his age, I want to be writing, reflecting and thinking with such wisdom and beauty on a life of walking with God.  That would be a life well-lived, I think!
