Introducing the life youd gladly stand in line for
You dont stand in line at Starbucks® just to buy a cup of coffee. You stop for the experience surrounding the cup of coffee.
Too many of us line up for God out of duty or guilt. We completely miss the warmth and richness of the experience of living with God. If wed learn to see what God is doing on earth, we could participate fully in the irresistible life that he offers.
You can learn to pay attention like never before, to identify where God is already in business right in your neighborhood. The doors are open and the coffee is brewing. God is serving the refreshing antidote to the unsatisfying, arms-length spiritual life-and he wont even make you stand in line.
Let Leonard Sweet show you how the passion that Starbucks® has for creating an irresistible experience can connect you with Gods stirring introduction to the experience of faith.
Creating a parallel between customers standing in line at Starbucks and Christians lining up for God, a compelling Christian writer invites readers to participate fully in the life God offers and to feel the warmth and richness of the irresistible experience. Original.
Sweet guides readers from the coffee shop right to the heart of God in this handbook that reveals unexpected spiritual lessons discovered at the local Starbucks.
