“Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places” by Eugene H. Peterson
A 10-day study of God’s idea of how his followers can live together effectively in community. Eugene H. Peterson will be our guide as we listen to excerpts from his book, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places.
The 10 Commandments (literally “10 Words”) are presented in the section of the book about community; we’ll look at a new “Word” each day. The videos usually last about one minute, except longer for Day 1 and Day 10. Scripture is from Deuteronomy 5:6-21.
10th Word: Interestingly Deut. 5:21 directs inward behavior, in contrast to the previous “Words” addressing outward behavior of the community members.
Consider the author’s statement “to covet is to fantasize a life other than what is given to me.”
