Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Winn Collier
“You had this sense that you were with someone who knew Jesus.” – Winn Collier
Winn Collier is the author of Eugene Peterson’s authorized biography, A Burning in My Bones. Few people have had an opportunity to know Eugene’s life as a pastor, theologian, author, and poet like Winn. Winn shares personal stories of Eugene’s upbringing and transformation. Winn describes that Eugene was transformed by prayer, slow reading, attentiveness, and deep encounters with God in the Scriptures; this changed the way he moved in the world and with people. Winn and Steve share stories of personal time with Euguene; times that were often marked by unhurried silence. Winn encourages the listener that we live in a world where we are deeply and profoundly addicted to our actions and our self-importance and our making things happen; but in God’s world, unhurried attentiveness to God and others is a very counter-transformational experience.
