A Life of Faith

One way to define spiritual life is getting so tired and fed up with yourself you go on to something better, which is following Jesus. Eugene H. Peterson

There are no experts in the company of Jesus. We are all beginners, necessarily followers, because we don’t know where we are going. Eugene H. Peterson

Eugene Peterson, pastor and author has entered into hospice care. (You can read about him here.) Peterson is perhaps best known for his The Message translation of Bible. He carefully wrote the Bible in the language of our day. He doesn’t presume this translation will be relevant forever; he expects that God will lift up someone else to write in the language of the day in the future.

The life of faith is a daily exploration of the constant and countless ways in which God’s grace and love are experienced. Eugene H. Peterson

Prayer gets us in on what God is doing. Eugene H. Peterson

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 am as we gather to worship God, to learn and to be with one another. May we pray for all those who are facing death, their family and friends and for the comfort of the Holy Spirit to be present in their journey. 

Grace be with you,


And yet I decide, every day, to set aside what I can do best and attempt what I do very clumsily - open myself to the frustrations and failures of loving, daring to believe that failing in love is better than succeeding in pride. Eugene Peterson

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it
was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and
say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am
an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole
thing. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers?
I'd certainly appreciate it.
