We just bought a bar, called Church Bar. Our url is www.partakeandimbibe.com

There is something holy about partaking…slowing down and absorbing all that’s around you. Pure nourishment.

I love that you’ve done this. What I wouldn’t have to come partake with you and your tribe. 💛

Lately it feels like I’m always in a rush, and inevitably there are more “slow people” in the grocery store whenever I am not able to be slow. We own a deli and market in a rural town, and I shop twice a week in a bigger town for supplies. It’s busy. But I love the premise of this coffee shop you visited--our aim is to be a Third Place in our community, for people to stay awhile and visit, and I want to model that in my own life. Thank you for sharing this beautiful pause.

It all comes out in the grocery store check out line, doesn't it? Phew, I relate to this so much. I've always looked at 'third places' as a missional concept... and lately I realize I need them, too. We all do. I'm so glad you're stewarding one. May you have grace to do it well.
