National Coffee Day

Happy National Coffee Day!
Enjoy a cup of buna (Amharic for coffee) today!

Here is something to ponder over your next cup of jo - something that got my wheels turning and heart aching last night....

How do we invite people within the south, who have been overloaded with a religious culture ("Bible Belt" mentally) that causes many to think Jesus=religion-rules-dos&donts-judgments-legalism, rather than the real invitation of the Gospel to be in relationship with our Savior who challenges everything about religion???

I find myself thinking about Brennan Manning's book The Ragamuffin Gospel as I re-read my inquire above and then those thoughts led me back to this post from 2009 that relates.

Happy National Coffee Day!

I really want to learn how Jesus remained completely holy and yet communicated such love that sinners loved being around him and wanted to be better.
