The Discipline of Lent

Adam gave up coffee for Lent. For most of us Protestants, we don't even think about Lent. Adam did and decided to try giving something up - coffee.

Many who give something up give up the thing that is furthest away from them. Not Adam, he works in a coffee shop - and he gave up drinking coffee for 40 days. In that period of time, he began to learn how to roast coffee, read books on coffee (even hosted a contest about coffee), and reflected often (look at the bottom of the post for a listing) about the process.

He finished his coffee fast today - with pics!!

I'm not sure I could handle giving up something that I was around like that. Especially when I enjoy coffee as much as I do.

Good job Adam!
