"The Holy Stump"
The holy is found in unlikely places. In this lecture, Eugene Peterson makes the connection between the holy and the abundant life through Isaiah's vision (Isaiah 6). Peterson outlines four traits normative to the holy life: the abolition of self-sufficiency, the acceptance of forgiveness, God's invitation to service, and the human response. He then explicates a fifth aspect in many experiences of the holy - the holy stump - and concludes responding to audience questions.
