As I sit in the coffee shop working on National Boards papers all Spring Break long, I have seen and heard some interesting conversations. As being from the east coast and now implanted in the Inland Northwest, things still seem to amaze me.
I cannot even believe that I am hearing such a passionate conversation about religion and Jesus in the coffee shop. And let me tell you, this is not the first time I have seen or heard things like this before. I mean this girl who is talking is very passionate about it! It is just a crazy thing to me, because in New York, this would not be a conversation that you would over hear at a coffee shop, let alone in a public place.
I have seen and heard people talking about religion passionately at coffee shops before and not even this one! Maybe I was in too much of a liberal area near NYC that to me this seems very strange.
Sometimes listening to people’s conversations is extremely empowering. For them to be so passionate about something, it makes me wish I could be passionate about that too! It makes me wish I could be more of a religious person and feel compassion about it.
That’s my slice for today. I really am missing the 31 day challenge!
