What happens when a city boy, with a pocket full of sermons, lands in a Scottish parish?
“This is the story of the places and people who taught me the pace of being known. My desire to modernize the church ground to a halt in a Scottish parish. But the first speed bump occurred in a class with Eugene Peterson, which I expected to be fresh and innovative. Instead our textbooks were dated and the lectures slow. My concern was for the future of the church. We didn’t need to slow down, the church needed to catch up!
“The second speed bump was arriving in Scotland for further education, and putting aside my dreams to plant a church. Instead, I found myself pastoring a small Scottish parish which had been founded 1600 years earlier, by St. Ninian. That’s when I discovered I had entered a new seminary – the school of the parish – and my teachers were the parishioners and their ordinary lives. By God’s grace and the patient mentoring of a mature congregation, I began my real formation not just as a pastor, but as a human being.”
THE STUDY GUIDE
This Easter season a 7 week Study Guide will be released to lead your community in translating Godspeed together. Seven Weeks @ Godspeed calls us to follow Jesus here and now, within this culture, people and place. With expanded interviews and additional footage, your community can hear how Eugene Peterson finally began to find his “parish” in suburban America, why N. T. Wright first has a melt-down on vacation, and the wisdom of Father Giles on stability. Find out more at the Godspeed Site
