Remembering Coffee

Posted: October 15, 2007 in missional

Yesterday our church began the H2O Project. Those who chose to will forgo all drinks but water for the next two weeks, tally the monies that we save and give it Living Water International, which builds wells around the world. It’s shocking to me to know that over 1 billion people in the world don’t have access to clean drinking water and a child dies every 15 seconds from a diseases that could be prevented if they had clean water.

So this morning, Rochelle washed our coffee tumblers (which we carry every day) and cleaned and put away our coffee pot. We won’t need it for a while. No morning “pick-me-up” or late night “stay-awake-to-work” java, Just water.

Matthew 25 talks about giving water to the thirsty. That’s what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to do what Jesus ask us to do. So for two weeks we’ll use some other method to wake up in the morning. We’ll just have to remember coffee!

    Call me what you will, bro, but I didn’t make it. I had completely forgotten when I woke up this morning to the smell of fresh-brewed coffee.

    Truth be told, the two cups of coffee I drink at home may net you about $2.50 in the kitty for the H2O project. I don’t go out for drinks (too expensive), and I sho’ don’t go to Starbucks. Even if I had a million bucks I couldn’t pay $4.55 for a stinkin’ cuppa joe.

    I admire you, my friend, for stickin’ with it. You’re a stronger man than I!

    $2.50/day for 14 days can give a lot of folks water. $1 can give 1 person clean water for 365 days. $10 for a lifetime.

    There is always redemption! Maybe you can start afresh tomorrow?
