Rich and roast

Preparing to celebrate the start of Christian Aid Week in worship this Sunday, I've been reflecting on coffee beans and learning about communities transformed by coffee. The work of Christian Aid is transforming coffee growing communities in Nicaragua, and, in worship, we'll be reflecting on the values that create and transform communities.
At our Cosy Cafe today, a drop in lunchtime facility for local secondary school pupils, the young folks were forming community and, unprompted, began to create community rules - deciding that a song containing bad language was inappropriate for the setting. It's amazing what can be encountered, achieved and worked through over a humble cup of coffee.
