St. Arbucks

I read an interesting entry in the Out of Ur blog recently about the comparison of church with Starbucks. It would be worth thinking about further... how can the church meet the needs of people like a popular coffee shop would?

As I read about St. Arbucks I was reminded of the several times that my husband and I have been at another (non-Starbucks) local coffee shop and have seen various types of Christian-related activities going on, everything from Bible studies to theological discussions to silent Bible reading by individuals. Perhaps we are seeing the development of another form of silent (or not so silent) witness to an otherwise pagan world!
