'C' is for Coffee...and Christian
It all started back in my days as a student at Taylor University. (Which is a WONDERFUL University...you should totally go there or send your child there) One day at chapel I noticed something peculiar, a majority of the ladies had their coffee mugs with them. At the next chapel I noticed it again. Now, it gets cold in Indiana during the winter so I wrote it off as a self preservation act.
Fast forward to current times. You look around the sanctuary at your church...everyone is drinking coffee. It's an epidemic! I went to a church down in Texas while on a vacation, their coffee bar was bigger than their welcome desk.
So what is with Christians and coffee? Is it a rite of passage that I am unfamiliar with? Does having a coffee bar (or station...depending on your denomination) make you a 'cool' church? Does coffee in the hands of people increase the authenticity of worship?
And seriously my Bible believing friends, a bar in church!!?? My great great grandpa is rolling in his grave.
