coffeehouse theologians

“You meet those who gladly do right,
those who remember you in your ways.” Isaiah 64:5a

taking the cup from the barista
with a warm smile and warmer tip,
you come over to where
we are sitting, licking foam
from our fingers as we are
hypnotized by our devices,
and as we bemoan all the hurt
and vitriol around us, you invite
us to spend time with you
at the free health clinic with
folks who need attention more
than our social media does
and walk out the door
hoping we will follow you
