I have had 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
The band was playing some lively music 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. I 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
Often we had someone playing a guitar.
The best times we had were at the local White Spot after we closed. 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 why we couldn't bring this to the Web and our home
and we couldn't think of any. Whatever form the gathering takes that we break bread, play the fiddle and
sip coffee in, we know that the important thing is the Lord and the people that the Lord sends our way.
Quality not Quantity is important.
I have learned over the years what makes for good Christian Fellowship. This site is the visual and virtual expression
of what will soon be a physical reality again.
Soon we will be breaking bread, playin music and talkin about the Lord around the table again.
