Rev. Haley and I sometimes meet at Everyday Joe’s in Old Town, a coffee shop operated by the evangelical Timberline Church.
Whatever you might think of their theology, there can be little doubt that the volunteers at Joe’s make a mean latte, and that the church serves the campus and community in many constructive ways.
On a visit to Joe’s the other day, I picked up a flyer inviting all to “Tell us your story.” The text seems a little like it could have been written for Foothills Unitarian:
If I didn’t know better, I might suppose that Timberline had borrowed a piece of the message of Foothills’ Transition Team. They, too, are asking folks to dream dreams and tell stories–all toward a tomorrow when your church serves members and the community in creative new ways. You’ll be hearing more about that soon for the Transition Team, and from special guest Rob Eller-Isaacs, one of our movement’s most effective and experienced leaders, who will be in the pulpit on December 7.
I look forward to hearing from you about the “topography of who you have become.”
