I’ve been doing a little reading lately on cafes and their history and influence. Traditionally, they have been a place for artists, writers and even those on the political fringe to meet to discuss news and various topics. They are also a great place to get together with a small group to talk about Scripture and what we’ve been studying. Iron sharpens iron! (Proverbs 27:17)
Motzei Shabbat (Saturday night), after our study at the Study Center, a small group of us went to a nearby cafe to discuss Shmittah. The cafe was very busy, but the five of us crowded around a tiny table. As we drank our coffees, Baruch had his Bible out on the table and we had a lively discussion about Scripture. Do you have a small group you can get together with to discuss something one of you has recently studied in your personal Bible study?
I really enjoy our Saturday night study where we can dive into Scripture and also enjoy fellowship.
