Missing Something on the Edge?

Here's today's trivia question for leaders who want to take their church to the edge:

Even after Starbucks had five stores and more than 20 employees, which item was unavailable for purchase at their stores:

Hot Coffee
Frappucino® blended beverage

Sorry but that's a trick question. The answer is 'all of the above.'

All they sold was beans... although you could get a free taste of the coffee if you thought to ask politely. It took several years after the company was up and running before they realized it might be a good idea to sell beverages.

No, I’m not suggesting every church needs a cafĂ©.

I do wonder, could your church be missing opportunities for ministry that are staring you right in the face?
