About the Blog
So I changed the name to Coffeehouse Contemplative, which is meant to do several things at once:
1. Retain a reference to coffee. That was a must.
2. Refer to the spiritual content that chiefly is found here (contemplative), but also with a sense that it's meant to be grounded in the everyday (coffeehouse).
The Content: In general, you'll find a lot about my experiences as a local church pastor, as well as exploring new and creative ways to do and be the church in the 21st century. You'll also find significant doses of pop culture, musings on family life, and reflections on where my spiritual journey has been or is going.
This is not my "professional blog" in conjunction with my work as a pastor. This is a hobby, or at best an independent ministry (because pastors are always "on" in some sense). I strive for an honesty here that you probably won't find on The Official Blog of Pastor So-and-So of Such-and-Such Church, and that's the way I like it.
Welcome, and thanks for reading.
