While reading through these sermons it is easy to imagine something about the women and men who comprised Peterson’s suburban congregation. The sentences and illustrations seem to hold in mind particular people with their very particular lives. In a sermon titled “Holy, Holy, Holy” from Isaiah 6 and Revelation 4, the pastor addresses his people gently:

The Wake Up Call – November 7, 2014

 

Eugene Peterson

This is a new weekly feature where we highlight 3 poems from a recent collection of poetry.
Since today is Eugene Peterson’s birthday, we are featuring his recent volume of poems.

“Like a rich and carefully crafted dessert, one must savor a poem in order to enjoy it fully—its images, its context, its sounds. A good poem is hospitable, inviting us to sit for awhile and enter into a conversation. Poetry, however, does not come naturally for us in our times; it is a discipline to which we must commit ourselves.”

This week’s collection of poems is:

―Eugene H. Peterson,
born on this date, 1932
