9781504953900: Mennonite Cobbler: Balancing Faith and Tradition in a Turbulent World

Where do Mennonites come from? How do you accidentally build a shoemaker? What happens when a family tries to leave the Old Order Faith and yet not make it into the real world? What happens to you when you throw a shovel full of sand at your mother? These and other matters of great pitch and moment are herein addressed. The author recounts family, social, and religious life in a household no longer enjoying the comfort and traditions of the Old Order Mennonite not yet assimilated into the modern world of the heathen Lutherans and hell-bound Catholics. The struggle of choices, a young man caught somewhere between the horse and heaven.

From the Inside Flap:

This book is dedicated to my darling daughters, Angela Rose Brubacher Ishaka and Genevieve Rebecca Brubacher Hiller.Who, as of this writing, have yet to completely disown their dad but by the time they are finished this book, this may well have happened.

About the Author:

Kenneth David Brubacher is from horse and buggy Old Order Mennonite extraction. He is also a real live (still, as of this writing, against all odds) shoemaker. He grew up in Elmira, Ontario, working in his father's shoe repair shop and started making custom footwear by hand from dead scratch (now deceased) in 1978. It is clearly testament to how unfussy people with wretched foot problems are that the business prospered. The author rejoices in having two beautiful and talented daughters (in spite of their dad) and nine grandchildren. These are good Mennonite people and read their Bibles. “Be fruitful and multiply.” He lives on an old farmstead near Creemore, Ontario, where there is quiet enjoyment.
