My small group decided on “The Bean” as a meeting place tonight. It is a grass roots coffee shop located Downtown Plymouth. We chose the back room for obvious reasons. Who wants to have an in-depth discussion among complete strangers? As irony would have it, sitting no further than 8 feet away from us was a slendor looking fellow making phone calls to people I’m sure he’s never met asking them if they would consider voting for Barack Obama. The entire length of our small group I was summoning the courage to start up a conversation with him. Unfortunately the moment passed.
I recently read an article in RELEVANT Magazine that tackled some of the tough issues of being a Christian in todays political world. It is worth the read.
