B.J. Max (Me): Lots of involvement with coffeehouses.
Shortly after becoming a Christian over twenty years ago, I went with a bro to a Coffeehouse in Ocean View, Virginia.
This coffeehouse was called the Fire Escape. There was something radically different about this coffeehouse. The message and
the methods were as different as night and day from other nightclubs and coffeehouses. The band was playing rock and roll
but the words were about JC. Well, I was accustomed to Christian music being boring and slow. This changed my view
of Christian Music forever. When being honourably discharged from the Navy to go home I got involved in one way or another
in Christian Coffehouses. One such coffeehouse was called Jesus on Main Street which later moved and changed it's name to
City Lights. Most of that time I ran Saturday Nights. We would have bands, talk one on one, every great once in a while groups
of people came in, food for the needy and even preachers coming in to say a word or two. This coffeehouse resembled
a mission more than it did the first Christian Coffeehouse I went to.
Other coffeehouses that I have been to are Noah's Ark and Daniels Den.
Still, the best times we had were at the local White Spot. We would talk for hours with friends and even
a few strangers would overhear our conversations.
Well, my wife and I asked ourselves if there was any reasons we shouldn't have what we had in the
last situation, in our home We couldn't think of any.
Whatever form the house takes that we break bread and sip coffee in takes, we know that the important thing is
the Lord and the people that the Lord sends our way.
I have learned over the years what makes for good Christian Fellowship around the table. This
site will soon be the visual and virtual expression of what will soon be a earthly reality again.
