Wishing it could be

Jordon talks about third spaces in his neighborhood – the lack of them – and wonders what it would look like, what it would be like if churches opened up and became these spaces.  He links to this space.

I wonder if we could ever do that. 

Maybe when I retire I’ll open up a good coffee place at church.  We have the WiFi.  We have a cool and shaded patio/basketball court. 

Install a fireplace for winter.  Comfy couches. 

I’ve always imagined a coffee shop called "Cafe Bololo" which translated is Black Coffee.

I wonder????     I wish it could be.  I’d be over there right now sipping a cup and having good conversation.  Or maybe writing this from that spot.

  1. Actually I think of your church as one of the ones that is an example that other church could follow in taking steps towards those kind of ideas. I think you are all further along than most are which is pretty cool.

    Jordon – little steps. And when vandalism happens it seems to mean taking a few steps back.

    I takes a lot to get people(older ones in particular) to start seeing the use of the building for interacting with people in a third space kind of way as a sacred use. Worshiping with others they understand as sacred. Just having fun, drinking coffee, listening to good music and using the internet isn’t treated with the same respect.
