i just wanted to quickly point you toward a couple of video interviews with Eugene Peterson. i have so enjoyed his words and work of late. that’s where the Lenten readings are coming from. (in the interest of full disclosure, i have been editing the passages–taking out the masculine pronouns when they refer to God. a practice that i picked up from my spiritual director and from Roberta Bondi. may their tribes increase.)
i haven’t watched the entire Sabbath video yet. but the Scripture edition is wonderful, especially in light of recent musings in the comments here. full of stories and digressions and word studies. i love how Eugene nervously pulled at his trousers. i was thrilled when he pulled them so far up a bit of skin showed!
hope you too enjoy.
