Podcast Host:

Chase Replogle

My name is Chase Replogle. I’m a pastor at Bent Oak Church, a freelance web designer, and a writer. This podcast is my journey to better understand the unique vocation of pastor and writer. It’s an attempt to “practice in public” what I’m learning about the process. I’ll do my best to be honest about the challenges and struggles of writing and hopefully, we can both learn along the way.

Discontent: How Your Heart's Desires Betray You

I’ve been told my entire life that who I am lies deep within the desires of my heart—I need only the courage to pursue my dreams. But it’s a trap.

Discontent: How Your Heart’s Desires Betray You offers the story of Samson—a Biblical anti-hero, driven by his own passionate desires and restless need for adventure—as a companion to discovering that who you are can’t be achieved but must be received by faith. In the end, Samson’s greatest failure wasn’t offering his secret to a treacherous woman, but a lack of discernment for seeing who God was leading him to become.
