Christ plays in ten thousand places

"I say more: the just man justices;
Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God’s eye what in God’s eye he is—
Christ—for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men’s faces
-Gerard Manely Hopkins, from As kingfishers catch fire
I was first introduced to that poem through Peter Leithart. Now there's a new book by Eugene Peterson called Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places: A Conversation in Spiritual Theology, Mars Hill Audio just put up a free mp3 interview with Peterson about his book here. Good stuff. He talks about how are lives our story shaped, and how doctrine isn't an end in itself. "doctrine informs our lives" Interesting discussion on content and form.
