How to start a Starbucks discussion group/booktalk

I have added some tips on how to start a Starbucks discussion group/booktalk to my website.
We have a Starbucks outreach on Monday nights at 7:30 PM. We have been able to pray with workers there, give them books to read on the Christian faith, and find little ways to bless their lives. We have also picked up people from the shop who haved joined our group.

The Christians in the group have had some co-workers visit with us, and many of our young adults who had "dropped out of the church" have become regular participants.

Of course, the regular, "older" members of the group have a great time, enjoying the fellowship and mental stimulus. When you do mission, you get fellowship and community, but when you primarily concentrate on fellowship and community, you rarely get to mission.

Why do you think it is so much easier for many non-Christians to go to a coffeeshop rather than a church building?
