May 1, 2011

Hope and Work

July 30, 2015

Hope and Work Eugene Peterson’s father was a butcher. “I always thought of my father as a priest,” Peterson writes. “He wore a white butcher’s apron as he presided over the work of slaughtering heifers and pigs, dressing them out, cutting them up.” For Peterson, the butcher shop did not seem that different from the place of worship.
