Place Embraced and Loved

‘Wendell Berry is a writer from whom I have learned much of my pastoral theology. Berry is a farmer in Kentucky. On this farm, besides plowing fields, planting crops and working horses, he writes novels and poems and essays. the importance of place is a recurrent theme – place embraced and loved understood and honored. Whenever Berry writes the word ‘farm’, I substitute ‘parish’; the sentence works for me every time’.
– Eugene Peterson, Under the Unpredictable Plant
