A group of Christian writers met weekly for fellowship at the local coffee house that had been started to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Many genres were represented by members of the fellowship. Lance wrote science fiction that was geared toward showing his belief that God created the world. “I believe in creation, not evolution,” Lance told Liberty, another group member.

 

Lois wrote daily journal entries about her relationship with the Lord. “I have a song in my heart continually because God lives in my heart,” Lois said.

 

Lancaster, the group’s newest member, had written poetry for many years. His dream was to self-publish a book of his poetry, and give copies of the book to local nursing homes, libraries, schools, hospitals, and physicians’ offices.

 

“Poetry is the language of the soul,” Lancaster told Limerick, the television reporter who interviewed him for a story for the evening newscast. “It’s a way of communicating God’s truths to people in a simple language they can understand.”

 

Limerick was also a member of the Christian coffee house fellowship group. Once a story had been shared on the newscast, Limerick fictionalized the characters, then brought them to life in short cartoon segments that everyone, from children to adults, could enjoy.

 

Lorraine, the owner of the coffee house, was also a Christian and a writer. A prolific songwriter, Lorraine spent many hours preparing baked goods to share with the group. Everyone loved her treats so much they asked for copies of the recipes almost every week.

 

Lorraine’s husband, Loren, was a professional chef by trade, so each week he cooked a multi-course meal for attendees. “Listening to each of you read your work is such good therapy my appetite is activated, so I just have to share some tasty food with you,” Loren said.

 

Limerick came up with an idea to honor Lorraine and Loren. “They’re always doing nice things for us,” he told other group members in an e-mail. “We should prepare a meal for them.”

 

Each group member provided an item for the special meal, which came as a welcome surprise to Lorraine and Loren. The quick-witted Loren said, “Thanks, everyone, for this great surprise! The only thing better than a great meal is one I didn’t have to cook myself!

 

“Plus, I want you to know I have decided to become a writer myself. I am going to compile a cookbook featuring all of my best recipes. I want each of you to write a special paragraph at the beginning of the book. You all are such great writers, and I am such a good cook, that with your descriptions of how delicious my recipes are, the book has to be a number-one best seller!”
