Sin-Habits

In his book, The Contemplative Pastor, Eugene Peterson writes a powerful chapter titled The Apocalyptic Pastor. Within that chapter he comments, “Sin-habits dull our free faith into stodgy moralism and respectable boredom; then crisis rips the veneer of cliché off everyday routines and reveals the side-by-side splendors of heaven and hell.”
