I'm a Pastor. I'm a Barista. Put the two together and you get a Pastorista. Some would say that I'm kind of like a spiritual bartender. Only I serve good coffee and a cup of comfort, counsel, and hopefully a little comedy too. I'm a believer that faith lived out belongs in the market place more than it does behind stained glass windows and under steeples.
I believe in taking faith to the streets. Not with bullhorns and skinny little comicbook tracks designed to scare someone into heaven. I believe that all people need Jesus. Rich, poor, people of color, people of different preferences or orientation. We all need Jesus. Not religion, but relationship. It's more than saying a prayer. Its more than saying you believe. Its more than reading your Bible or praying once or twice a day. Its doing life with the understood reality that Jesus desires to be an intricate part of your life.
