small town cafe! When we DO eat out (not as often as we used to), there is something satisfying about the local restaurant - where you are greeted by name and recognize many of the other diners. The food is fine but nothing fancy.
local cafe. A lot more goes on there than just eating!! When traveling, we frequently search out cafes in small towns. We look for a lot of cars in the parking lot which seems to indicate approval by the locals and are seldom disappointed!
Being a pastor's wife, I maybe jump to this comparison quicker than others might...but I think the church in one's own community is a good choice, too. Rather than jumping Sunday to Sunday to a church that has a guest musician or famous-named speaker, get involved and be faithful in attending the church nearest you where people are eager to learn and live out the Word of God! In addition to listening to Christian music, reading Christian books, downloading services or watching television services, go in person to your local church where you can be greeted by name and recognize and interact with the other diners! Be a "regular"!
It may not be fancy but it will be fine.
In fact, Jesus said:
"Where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20
By the way, do you have a favorite local cafe?
