New Book for Our Starbucks Group--Velvet Elvis

We have started a new book in our Starbucks group, Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell. Rob Bell is a Gen-X preacher, and is very popular with Young Adults.

Bell combines a postmodern style with some deep and interesting biblical gems. He has done a lot of study on Judaism, which gives a lot of insight to some biblical texts on Jesus.

Our Starbucks group continues to be a great gathering place for young adults, who love the atmosphere, the music, and the interactive setting. I also see in Starbucks some Boomers. People my age, Gen Xers, like Starbucks, but often have young kids and aren't able to go hang out a lot, though they enjoy it when they do. It is a good "third place."
