I wrote this for our quarterly e-newsletter, summer 2017 edition:
The next time you partake in the Third Lutheran Sacrament, whether coffee or tea, I encourage you to think about our connections to one another. Do I know where in the world my coffee came from? Who harvested it, and were they fairly paid? Did I grab my coffee while on the go, or am I able to use my coffee break time to make connections with friends, co-workers, or even strangers? Especially over the summer as we disperse in all directions, we can still remember that we are all connected to this same family of God, no matter where we may find ourselves - working, at the beach, with family, traveling, or drinking coffee. Safe travels this summer and enjoy your coffee!
Yours in Christ,
Reverend Lydia Posselt
