Every so often I am reassured that my dream/calling of creating and building community via a coffeehouse is achieveable... Check out FREEWAY in Hamilton, Canada. I am delighted to see we have a shared vision. I almost want to jump in a plane and visit the place. Its how I envisioned our place to be and its how the Kog Cafe should be. Wow! Check it out: Link
Check out their explanation of the Third Place: link
I got the heads-up from Steve Taylor's emergent kiwi blog. Freeway posted a postcard on his site. Interestingly, the comments on the postcard indicate that Freeway is part of the Salvation Army!!! NO WAY!!! Check out the postcard: Link If this is being done... then it can be replicated.
Check out the Freeway church's blog - The Colloquy - for more thoughts/ideas. Its a worthy read.
