If you’ve followed my blog for more than a few weeks, you know Andrew Peterson is high on my list of favorite writers.
I’ve been waiting a long time for the release of his first non-fiction book—Adorning the Dark: Thoughts on Community, Calling, and the Mystery of Making. It hit retailers last Tuesday and I placed my order that morning.
Already, Andrew is sharpening my perspective on the world and creativity. His writing is vulnerable, raw, and wise (reasons why I love it).
Here’s an excerpt I especially loved:
You and I are anything but irrelevant. Don’t let the Enemy tell you any different. We holy fools all bear God’s image. We’re walking temples of the Spirit, the bashful bride of Christ, living stones in what is going to be a grand house, as holy and precious as anything else in the universe, if not more so. God is making us into a Kingdom, a lovely, peaceful one, lit by his love for us flowing toward one another. That’s the best gift you have to give.[i]
