Cafés are a natural place to engage in conversations about God. Many of us don’t just swing by for a quick caffeine fix and then dash out. We like to sit down, relax, and read a book or engage in conversation with a friend over a cup of coffee with espresso brownies or cranberry-orange muffins.
A coffee shop is a superb place to talk about what’s important … what makes for good life … why we should be moral … what is really real.
In café chats … you ultimately get down to the issues of truth and reality … the fundamentals of any philosophy of life. Let’s imagine walking into the Salt Creek Cafe and getting our coffee and sitting down and striking up a conversation with a stranger there who happens to be Solomon. What direction do you think that conversation would take? What would we talk about? I believe we have that conversation recorded for us in the Book of Ecclesiastes.
