Wendell Berry & Worship & Ministry

A friend pointed me to a short article on reading Wendell Berry that you can find by clicking HERE.

There are also 37 other reasons why you would do yourself a favor (for which yourself would thank you) by reading through some of Wendell Berry's fiction.

I'd also recommend this book...


And pastors will enjoy Berry on an even deeper level by remembering what Eugene Peterson says, which is something like this:  Reading Wendell Berry's fiction is the greatest aid to the development of pastoral theology he's ever known.  Whenever Berry writes about the love of the land, you simply substitute the word "parish" for "land," and there you go.  That's a great deal of the pastor's calling.
