90: Eric Peterson | Lifelong Wisdom

When we think of life well lived, it's hard to come up with a better example than Eugene and Jan Peterson. Back in the Spring of 2019, we had the incredible honor of sitting down with the delightful Jan, beloved wife of Eugene Peterson, for what none of us realized would be her very last interview. Shortly after our time together, Jan went home to be with Jesus in May of 2019. Jan’s story of love, faith, and long obedience in the same direction remains one of our most listened to and commented on episodes to date.


On today’s episode we had the tremendous honor of chatting with Eugene and Jan’s son, Eric Peterson. Eric shares what it was like growing up in the Peterson home, his journey into the calling of local church ministry, and the wisdom from his dad Eugene through the form of letters that impacted him as a young pastor.

As always, we hope this conversation will bless you as much as it did us! Listen in!
