Show Notes:40. Benjamin Vrbicek — Reflections on the Pursuit of Writing

Writing is a calling; a calling always requires faithfulness. It’s so easy to say you want to be a writer. It’s an entirely different thing to do it with faithfulness, to leave the comfort of home and follow God to a place yet to be told.

Benjamin is that kind of writer and he has my respect for it. Writing hasn’t always been easy and he isn’t afraid to acknowledge it. His honesty is refreshing and his writing reflects his humility in the best of ways.

Through his writing, Benjamin continues to serve the church by addressing some of the most important topics that often publishers and other authors find difficult to address.

Benjamin is worth your attention.

  • I have a stained glass artist in my congregation who does incredible work. This past week, as a graduation gift, the congregation gave me this stained glass piece. It is of a bent oak tree like the one we named the church after. I listened as they explained how the church had been for them a bent oak, a tree designed to point towards safety and water. They are common in the Ozarks. Native Americans would tie down young trees and force them to grow in odd shapes as markers. I have always been impressed by their willingness to do that work, knowing that it might be only be later generations that would benefit from them. Still, it’s a weird name for a church. I know. But to hear people personally resonate with what moved me those many years ago was an incredible gift. And this stained glass piece is now one of my favorite possessions.
  • Last 3 years have been working on a doctorate of ministry in writing. Grateful for the time to study, write and for the great friendships.
  • Domes, pastries, paintings and our last day in Paris.
  • Germany was great. And I do love Paris.
