Most Monday nights I am with a small group of women talking about our spiritual lives at Panera. Tonight was no exception. What struck us tonight was how many other small groups were there doing something similar. We were not eavesdropping but three other groups around us were definitely Christian groups getting together for coffee and conversation related to faith. We think Panera may be one of the holiest places in the neighborhood and ecumenical as well. When we left I checked for a halo over the place but there wasn't one.
It really does remind me of what Jesus said, "Where ever two or three are gathered, there I am in their midst." It doesn't matter where, he is with us. Always.
