Mysterious power

The privilege of the pastorate
I love Eugene Peterson’s remark that “if you are called to it, being a pastor is the best life there is” (see David Wood’s interview). Like every pastor I have days and seasons when I’m not sure of that. And then Lent comes and Holy Week and Easter, and I can’t imagine doing anything other than what I am doing—trying to communicate something of God’s truth to my congregation as we rehearse the story of love’s strange power and life’s victory over death.
