I live for cafe misto
Session meeting last night was positive and filled with hard, but brave conversation about the economy. Commitment Sunday is this Sunday....we have shared a prudent, responsible budget, but people are still anxious. I think we ended on a hopeful,prayerful note, expecting the best that people can offer in response to a generous God. Sometimes whole days feel like they're just giant, ongoing moments for deep, intentional conversation. It's a good thing, and it's really tiring.
Decaf skim cafe mistos at Starbucks are pretty much half the price of lattes. That's been a great learning of late. I like the misto just as well as the latte. (These are the great issues of our day.)
So much to do today, and nearly all of it is at my desk.
Wishing you a great day of hope and flavor.
