“I used to want to fix people, but now I just want to be with them.”
“I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.”
“Failure is just part of the process, and it’s not just okay; it’s better than okay. God doesn’t want failure to shut us down. God didn’t make it a three-strikes-and-you’re-out sort of thing. It’s more about how God helps us dust ourselves off so we can swing for the fences again. And all of this without keeping a meticulous record of our screw-ups.”
“…love is never stationary.”

Eugene Peterson is one of the best known theologians of our time.

Here, we discuss his unlikely call to ministry, the work of a pastor and what, if anything, he wishes he could change about The Message. SEE MORE HERE
