“America does not honor the quiet work that develops spiritual root systems and community stability. To avoid being swept along by the winds of change and conducting a ministry that is mostly improvisation, one must stubbornly dig one’s heels into the ground”. Eugene Peterson, Five Smooth Stones for Pastoral Work
I highlighted this quote years ago. Somehow it still speaks to me, yet I yearn for the winds of change and currently ministry is much improvisation.
How does this quote sit with you?
