Holy Grounds

Contemporary Meditations on Life, Coffee, and the Practice of Faith


In the summer of 2008, Daniel May led a small group of folks in planting a church. To make ends meet, he worked as a barista in a local coffee shop. As he ground espresso, manned the counter, and chatted with customers, he noticed that God was using the experience to teach him in ways that he had never anticipated. This book is a collection of stories and reflections and ponderings from that journey.
