I’m sitting here this morning drinking my coffee, and I just remembered something Sam Crabtree said a few years ago at a men’s retreat. I was new to Bethlehem and still wasn’t sure about this whole retreat. I remember not sleeping well, and first thing after my ablutions in the morning I found some coffee. I was still going at the coffee at breakfast time when Pastor Sam stood up to pray, and his prayer started like this- “Dear Lord, we thank you for the coffee bean…”
Amen to that. Lord, thank you for this most precious of all beans, and the goodness you communicate to us through it.
