Third Best Cup of Coffee on Our Ten Thousand Mile Trip


    I heard someone say that coffee is “poor man’s gold.” In reality, even a really good cup of coffee only costs a few pennies, yet it makes a person experience the joy of life.  A cup of coffee sitting at a small table, and one feels a wave of well being.
    So here was the third best cup of coffee I had on the entire 10,000 mile trip–Seattle Coffee Works in downtown Seattle.  Coffee from a chemex–rich, deep, in a large tub of a cup, like a black sea.  The barista took his time making it and told me a bit of his life story as we waited.  As I sat at the sidewalk table, a man with a whole raccoon as a cap walked by.  Seattle had a little different flavor than Manhattan.
    It was a glorious moment with Susan and Pepper, our dog.  Here is the verse I am thinking about tonight–“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).  Sometimes I don’t think we take the “all” words seriously enough in the Bible, like when it says God will unite all things in Christ.  I hope the “all” includes drinking a cup of coffee.
