I’d tell him a secret I learned from Eugene Peterson.
Peterson has influenced my pastoral life and mind more profoundly than anyone else.
Peterson never delivered a formula for success. He just wrote about pastoral work and how to live it.
Gene was deeply rooted in scripture and in a Christ-centered spirituality.
“I’ve loved being a pastor, almost every minute of it,” Peterson once told the Century.
David Keck offers a refreshing addition to the conversation about vocational expectations. Eugene Peterson’s vision of holiness resonates with Keck, but Keck takes a different tack.
To Eugene Peterson, a church is not a demarcated zone of idealized community. The potential for misdirection and distraction abounds.
