Last week, Eugene Peterson passed away at the age of 85.
Years ago, I had the privilege of interviewing him, via phone, for a magazine article. I was so nervous that the phone shook! He quickly put me at ease. He was genuine, helpful and kind. And so very humble.
Here’s something I loved learning about him: Eugene Peterson pastored a small church for most of his life. The Message was published after he retired, using material he’d written for his church.
Think about that! God has good plans for each one of us…at any age.
If you’re a Eugene Peterson fan and haven’t read The Pastor, a memoir of his life,
put it on your TBD list.
In the meantime, I think you’ll enjoy reading this post about him by Philip Yancey. 

And here is a statement from his family about his last few remarkable days in Relevant Magazine.

What a blessing he was to this world! He will be missed.
