In our day, information comes so quickly in blog posts and sound bites. But real reflection takes a long time. No one has reflected longer about Church, calling, and the pastoral vocation than Eugene Peterson. In these four 1991 lectures, from Acadia Divinity School, Peterson reflects in a way that is convicting, inspiring, and deeply personal.
Watch. But it will take some time.
* Best as I can tell, these 1991 lectures form the basis of Peterson’s book Under the Unpredictable Plant (1994) which I had to read in seminary.
