Writing and Pastoring: “an entrance into chaos”

Eugene Peterson:

“Being a writer and being a pastor are virtually the same thing for me: an entrance into chaos, the mess of things, and then this little mysterious work making something out of it, something good, something blessed—poem, prayer, conversation, sermon, a sighting of grace, a recognition of love, a shaping of virtue.”
