“You are the light of the world…” (Matthew 5.14)
“Triple Grande 140-degree no foam cinnamon dolce latte with caramel on the whip,” came the order of an eager Washingtonian through the headset. She was about to drive up to one of the best-lit Starbucks in the Nation. No, I’m not talking about fluorescents. I’m talking about my son and daughter-in-law, Wes and Tina. When they were baristas, their good works and testimony had an amazing impact for Christ. Hostile people became curious. Curious people became followers of Jesus. And the light wasn’t isolated to this little coffee shop. It penetrated some of the darkest corners of their small town. How did they make such an amazing impact? They didn’t just serve coffee; they served people and shed light on the Kingdom of God just like Jesus did.
