Eugene Peterson died last week. I didn't know it was possible to mourn and be so upset about someone you've never met. Yet I am.

Here's a quote of his I have been pondering:

“Busyness is the enemy of spirituality.  It is essentially laziness.  It is doing the easy thing instead of the hard thing.  It is filling our time with our own actions instead of paying attentions to God’s actions.  It is taking charge.”
