Text Quotes
Prayer is the disciplined refusal to act before God acts  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Waiting means going about our assigned tasks, confident that God will provide the meaning and the conclusions.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) There is nothing terribly difficult in the Bible - at least in a technical way. The Bible is written in street language, common language. Most of it was oral and spoken to illiterate people. They were the first ones to receive it. So when we make everything academic, we lose something  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) American culture is probably the least Christian culture that we’ve ever had because it is so materialistic and it’s so full of lies. The whole advertising world is just, it’s just intertwined with lies, appealing to the worst of the instincts we have  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Pastors need to know what’s going on in the world and what has been going on for 4,000 years. We need a way to read Scripture which is imaginative, interpretive  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) I get asked, ‘What do you miss most about being a pastor?’ I think it’s the intimacy, the incredible gift of intimacy. You go through death with somebody, with their families, and there’s an intimacy that comes through that that is just incomparable  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The minute the church and pastors start saying what do people want and then giving it to them, we betray our calling. We’re called to have people follow Jesus. We’re called to have people learn how to forgive their enemies  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The Spirit works through community. Somebody will have a stupid, screwy idea. That’s okay. The point of having creeds and confessions and traditions is to keep us in touch with the obvious errors  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) We’ve all met a certain type of spiritual person. She’s a wonderful person. She loves the Lord. She prays and reads the Bible all the time. But all she thinks about is herself. She’s not a selfish person. But she’s always at the center of everything she’s doing  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Spirituality is no different from what weve been doing for two thousand years just by going to church and receiving the sacraments, being baptized, learning to pray, and reading Scriptures rightly. Its just ordinary stuff  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The Bible is not a script for a funeral service, but it is the record of God always bringing life where we expected to find death. Everywhere it is the story of resurrection  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) I don’t want to end up a bureaucrat in the time-management business for God or a librarian cataloguing timeless truths. Salvation is kicking in the womb of creation right now, any time now. Pay attention  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The life of faith is a daily exploration of the constant and countless ways in which Gods grace and love are expereinced  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) There’s nobody who doesn’t have problems with the church, because there’s sin in the church. But there’s no other place to be a Christian except the church  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Set the world right; Do what’s best - As above, so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others. Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You’re in charge!  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be - you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean. Count yourself lucky - God holds nothing against you and you’re holding nothing back from Him.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Without stories we end up with stereotypes -- a flat earth with flat cardboard figures that have no texture or depth, no INTERIOR.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) A person has to get fed up with the ways of the world before he, before she acquires an appetite for the world of grace.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Joy is not a requirement of Christian discipleship, it is a consequence. It is not what we have to acquire in order to experience life in Christ; it is what comes to us when we are walking in the way of faith and obedience.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Like the sacramental use of water and bread and wine, friendship takes what’s common in human experience and turns it into something holy.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) O God, when my faith gets overladen with dust, blow it clean with the wind of your Spirit. When my habits of obedience get stiff and rusty, anoint them with the oil of your Spirit. Restore the enthusiasm of my first love for you.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The moment the organic unity of belief and behaviour is damaged in any way, we are incapable of living out the full humanity for which we were created.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The religious leader is the most untrustworthy of leaders; in no other station do we have so many opportunities for pride, covetousness and lust, and with so many excellent disguises to keep such ignobility from being found out and called to account.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) That’s the whole spiritual life. It’s learning how to die. And as you learn how to die, you start losing all your illusions, and you start being capable now of true intimacy and love.  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Unlike mere action, prayer is not subject to immediate evaluation or verification. If we are addicted to results we will quickly lose interest in prayer  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Praying puts us at risk of getting involved in God’s conditions. Be slow to pray. Praying most often doesn’t get us what we want but what God wants, something quite at variance with what we conceive to be in our best interests  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) There is something about Christmas that requires a rug rat. Little kids make Christmas fun. I wonder if could rent one for the holidays. When I was tiny we would by a real tree and stay up late drinking hot chocolate and finding just the right place for the special decorations  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) The Bible makes it clear that every time that there is a story of faith, it is completely original. God’s creative genius is endless  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes) Like the sacramental use of water and bread and wine, friendship takes what’s common in human experience and turns it into something holy  (Eugene H Peterson Quotes)
