I’d like to have some, but here I am blogging as a service to you (or me or some idol I fancy–how many of us really blog to God’s glory?) And here you are reading. Feel blessed. No, no, I insist.
Provocative Church has begun to serve Rwandan coffee between services. The company is The Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee which “invests up to $3 [of every 12 oz bag sold] in the Rwandan Economy, $1 of which goes directly to fund micro-finance, small business projects for the women of Inyakurama (widows in Rwanda who are working to restore their lives),” according to the company website.
In other news, a physicist briefly explains why coffee drops leave rings when they dry. He says, “I’m having to learn some fluid dynamics for the first time, and it’s pretty amazing how complicated it all is.”
Also from our beverage desk, a couple companies, one in California, one in Alberta, are selling bottled “holy” water. Catholic and Anglican priests are offering blessings on California bottled water in an effort to promote “law enforcement” by redeeming drinkers. And get this warning label: “If you are a sinner or evil in nature, this product may cause burning, intense heat, sweating, skin irritations, rashes, itchiness, vomiting, bloodshot and watery eyes, pale skin color and oral irritations.”
I suppose things more blasphemous than this have been done before.
