I tried to embed this video but for the life of me I couldn’t get it to work. If you’re interested HERE is a video of Eugene Peterson speaking to PBS regarding his new book, “The Pastor”. It is quite possibly the best interview I have seen of Peterson. In so many ways Peterson embodies what I think a pastor should be. Caring, scholarly and Jesus centered!

Among some of the interesting things Peterson says I loved this, “People have been treated as consumers for so long they don’t know how else to live!” How true is this!

It was also interesting to hear he gives away all of the proceeds from The Message and his other book. Nice. I hope you enjoy the video!
