Pastor James got it close in his Epistle, but it is faith without coffee that is truly dead. Some say that coffee is bad for you. Don’t listen to them, it’s a lie from Hell. They say that everyone who has ever drank coffee has died, true, but I find that it’s exactly the same for carrots.
I drink my coffee extra strong, with about 40% heavy cream (similar to a Cuban ‘cortadito’ but without the sugar). I like the heavy roasted taste of Starbucks French Roast, although Trader Joe’s French Roast is also good. Everything else I’ve tasted is weak and wimpy; not weighty and full-bodied like the God we serve.
“…weighty and full-bodied like the God we serve.”
There is nothing better in the morning than to be nestled in my reading couch with my Bible and my huge mug of hot coffee. Well,….I also need my handheld computer (Olive Tree Bible Software), my Moleskine tablet, and my favorite Bible writing pencil.
