A Long Obedience (31)

Also started A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society by Eugene Peterson. Most chapters are meditations on a set of ascent Psalms (120 and following); so I’ll be working through them over the next two weeks or so as a devotional sort of reading. The book came out in 1980 and was revised in 2000 (mostly updating scripture texts to Peterson’s The Message), so it’s not new, but should be worth a read as a semi-classic. The meditation on Psalm 120 highlights the world of the lie we live in and our need for repentance; these seem pretty timeless to me!
