Coffee Church

Today I took time to visit my local Starbucks. I worked there for 3 years and it is a place I see a lot of folks in our community. It was late afternoon so a bit slow. Good time to drink a Chai latte and get some reading done. [By the way, I am reading Living the Cross Centered Life by C. J. Mahaney...I highly recommend it!] During my time there I had a chance to talk theology and doctrine with a couple of friends. We talked openly and often quite loudly about some fairly interesting topics. It was good and thought provoking. A year or so back there was a group of folks that would meet at this same Starbucks on Sunday morning...they called it "coffee church." Mostly it was a big gossip session. Since I'm busy elsewhere most Sunday mornings, I think I will start "coffee church" on Tuesday afternoons. Kind of my own little church plant. Nice building, plenty of coffee and pastries. I think I will dispense with the singing and go straight to the message, not sure about the offering just yet. I'll keep you posted on the attendance. Pray that the Lord will bless this new work.
