Out of Context: Eugene Peterson
Theology in community.
From "Having Ears, Do You Not Hear?" in the current issue of Leadership.
"As a pastor, I'm not a theology policeman...But if we are part of a community where the Scriptures are honored, I don't think we have to worry too much. The Spirit works through community. Somebody will have a stupid, screwy idea. That's okay. The point of having creeds and confessions and traditions is to keep us in touch with the obvious errors."
To read the rest, pick up the Winter '09 issue of Leadership journal.
