Love this photo by super rad barista @cabell_tice — he now works at Astoria cafe partner @street14coffee after moving from Boston where our great friends at @thinkingcup were lucky to have him behind the bar. Hope you’re settling in nicely. by stumptowncoffee

"Why do people come to this party called "Christianity" and then refuse to dance with grace? Not only that, but why do people stand on the wall, and not only refuse to dance, but also not allow anyone else to have a good time?!"

hmmmmmm yes. some people have real struggles with accepting love and grace when they know God is a good God and must have justice. someone close to me wrestles with grace and i just know that some of us accept easier than others but ultimately we must inspire. we must love. we must pull their arms and eyes into our joy and show them what rain and dancing feels like admist Heaven on earth. you know?
are you italian?
the lighting was weird so i just wanted to post this somewhere because i half like it half meh
