It is with a sad heart that I report that Eugene Peterson, who created the Message Version of the Bible, passed away on October 22nd after battling dementia and heart failure. Thomas Keating, a Christian monk, also passed away on October 22nd, 2018.
While many do not agree/believe in Peterson’s paraphrased version of the Bible, He is still an important part of many people’s lives and in Christian culture as a whole. Thomas Keating did much for the Christian community as well.
Please take a moment this week and pray for their friends, family, and loved ones. Thank you, brothers Eugene and Thomas, for all you have done.
