A German pastor thinks he may have found a an effective way to approach the men in his community and it involves one of his greatest passions, whisky.
53-year-old Thomas Eschenbacher, a Franconian pastor from Hammelburg, in Bavaria, has long been looking for ways to approach men and talk to them about God and the Christian faith. It’s not the easiest thing to do, especially in this day in age, but Eschenbacher thinks whisky may just be the solution to his problem. A big fan of the Scottish spirit, the pastor noticed how easy it was to start a conversation about whisky during a leisurely whiskey tasting evening with friends, and decided to use the same catalyst to get through to men in matters of religion. He recently announced that he was organizing a “whisky retreat” for men and all the 30 available spots were sold out almost instantly.
