Show Notes:24. Peter Scazzero — The Emotionally Healthy Writer

I first encountered Pete’s book, Emotionally Healthy Leadership, through a pastors group that meet’s quarterly to discuss assigned readings. Like myself, Pete’s book was a favorite for nearly everyone in the group.

In an age of strategic planning, pragmatic evaluations, and extreme productivity, the contemplative spirituality and emotional health Pete recommends is like a cool breeze blowing in from the open window. Pete reminds us all valuable lessons like, beware of doing for God before being with God.

In our conversation, we cover Pete’s own journey to emotional health and how his contemplative approach to spirituality has impacted his writing and his calling as a writer.

This week I began a new doctorate of ministry program in writing at Wester Theological Seminary. Great campus, great people, and a lot of talking about writing. It was a good week.
