Salvation Is A Story


I had the privilege of being interviewed (with my son Elliot in my arms, at Wild Goose Festival) by Travis Reed of The Work of the People and Alter Video Magazine.

Travis is one of the most prolific and talented video storytellers I know. I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with Travis at some of the same conferences we’ve both attended over the past few years. I just have a ton of respect for Travis, his no-nonsense attitude about life and faith, his startlingly infectious laughter, and his brilliant ability to tell people’s stories. Truly an honor to stand in front of that man’s camera!

Watch it until the very end, and I think you’ll see why this was such a significant moment for me …

“For Jesus doesn’t impose salvation as a solution; he narrates salvation into being through leisurely conversation, intimate personal relationships, compassionate responses, passionate prayer, and — putting it all together — a sacrificial death. We don’t casually walk away from words like that.”
—Eugene Peterson in the Introduction to John in The Message
