If churches were coffee brands, you might see churches like this:
They've been drinking the same coffee since 1950 and if it was good enough then, it's good enough now.
They have a blend of different coffees, but they're all a little stale-tasting.
Pretty much everyone in town goes there. They've got the "cool" music and the "relevant" atmosphere, but they have to write your name on your cup in order to remember it.
They only meet in locally-owned and operated cafes. They would never dream of putting syrup in a latte just to make it more appealing.
They just want to drink coffee the way the early church drank coffee. They believe that we are all baristas, whether that's our vocation or not.
So which brand would your church be?
