Show Notes:38. Doug Wilson — Writing is Life and Conversation

Pastor of Christ Church, a leader in Classical Education, Public apologist and theologian, Doug Wilson’s ministry has gained wide attention. But the common denominator across the spectrum is the disciple of writing.

His Amazon page lists over 100 titles. But Doug cares deeply about words, about the craft of writing. Wordsmithy: Hot Tips for the Writing Life, captures his best advice on the craft of writing.

He joins me to talk about the life of the writer and how writing is a part of a broader conversation.

After years of working on a book, mostly in secret, it is such a wonderful gift to hear what people think. I’m so grateful for all the reviews.

Responsibility feels like a loaded word, but what does responsibility actually mean? Technically, responsibility is nothing more than the ability to respond. To be responsible for anything doesn’t mean you’re an expert. It only means that you’re willing to answer, to show up, to enter the complexity and uncertainty of it, to give it your honest best shot. Think of responsibility as the willingness to respond.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer once wrote, “Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”

The first key to fatherhood is not a head full of answers and advice, it’s simply being there. Responsibility is first presence.

2,100 pastors are about to get free copies of The 5 Masculine Instincts as a part of Church Marketing University’s new Father’s Day Kit. Special thanks to CMU and Fulfillment House, a Kansas City non-profit providing opportunities for adults with special needs. Both are amazing organizations.
