Good morning. Welcome to the garage where today we are fixing something that may not smell and taste like one of the mentor languages but it is. When Mountain Springs Church Pastor Steve Holt asks his congregation to read three chapters of the Bible, sing three worship songs and to write three things that God is speaking to you, (although his message was two songs and two things God is saying to you), he neglected to say what he was on (legally-I mean). He gets his French Press prepared in the process and coffee is indeed a part of the hypothesis of his mentor language.
Mission Coffee Roasters
This morning I want to tell you about our devotion from a French Press and tell you a story about a friend of mine named Brett Bixler. Brett recently moved his family, his coffee roaster and his ministry from Baltimore to start a-new in Colorado. No he was not “born in the summer of his 27th year” but the free trade and the organic integrity of roasting and brewing coffee from the mission field can make the three chapters of Bible clearer, the three worship songs sound better, and living out those things that God is speaking to us gives us a little more step and a lot more vision. Sure coffee is not an end all, but when God is in the mix, our morning start is a little easier.
I want to tell you straight out that my “mentor language” tastes more like message, music and mission. I met Brett Bixler by phone and by e-mails in 2004. I was directing and hosting the Envoy Film Festival and was looking for sponsors. Brett loved the idea, got me in touch with a website company and helped with two years of the fest. We became fast friends albeit never met face to face. Recently Brett moved to Colorado to bring his kids into a school system that he and his wife could live with. In the years we have known each other we have spent hours mentoring to one another on business, family and community dreams God has had for us.
I’m glad he is here and if anything happens in the garage one thing is certain- the coffee is great.
