near + far

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.

    drove by our mutual bridge and kicked myself again for the long distance between our last face to face and today.
