Eugene Peterson, “The Apocalyptic Pastor”

A “quotable quote/tweetable tweet” for March 3, 2011

“The apocalyptic pastor prays. St John’s pastoral vocation was worked out on his knees. He embraced the act of prayer as pivotal in his work, and then showed it as pivotal in everyone’s work. Nothing a pastor does is different in kind from what all Christians do, but sometimes it is more focuses, more visible. Prayer is the pivot action in the Christian community.” (Emphasis his.)
