My Central Perk
My church just opened a coffee house on Capitol Hill. It is called Ebenezer's and can be found at this webpage. I have to be careful or I will become an Ebenezer's rat.
Within the religious life community at Ashland University, there were these people who were known as chapel rats, among whom I was a part. Chapel rats were people that made their second home the chapel. You could find them in the chapel studying, reading, and hanging out pretty much any time of the day.
I could have a serious tendency to do that at Ebenezer's! I went there on Saturday morning for a cup of joe with Gina, then for the inaugural Saturday night service, then I went to NCC for service this morning and back to Ebenezer's this evening for Sunday Night Live. Granted, they are all good things. I just don't want to hang out there TOO much!
Of Note: I attended the third of four inaugural Saturday night services. The official kick off service for Saturday nights is next weekend! So does that make that the 5th Inaugural service? And is it possible to have more than one inaugural anything!?
Of Note (2): I'm not completely convinced that there was a time when carrots were every other color but orange. I don't want to contest my pastor on most of his theology, but I'm wrestling in my soul with the non-orange carrots.
Of Note (3): I've decided that I'm going to purchase $5 gift cards to Ebenezer's for my neighbors. Truth be told, I haven't passed out one of the message series invites that the church passes out in the bulletins before a new series. But heck, I can bless my neighbors with a cup of coffee, they'll meet some good people and maybe even venture down for a service sometime. That I think I can handle!
