Father Thomas Bailey is a modern renaissance man. A priest and Benedictine monk in the Eastern Orthodox Church, Father Thomas also teaches college, holds a doctorate in history, performs services at his parish — and he’s a woodworker. His YouTube channel and website, Monkwerks, contain some of his past projects. But while he builds a few items for his monastery and parish, Father Thomas mostly makes things for pleasure. He sees Making as his reward for all of the other work he does. Join us as we talk to Father Thomas about:

  • Learning to fix things alongside his father
  • Choosing to become a monk
  • His experiences in teaching
  • How even a monk can get caught up in the rat race
