“Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Luke 12:40)
Nobody expected Jesus
to walk into Starbucks.
What would Jesus order? we wondered.
Why is the Son of Man in Starbucks?
Did Christ come for converts
or just for steaming caffeine?
Did he come to judge
the coffee and the danish?
Would his credit card earn heavenly rewards
that he would redeem for sinners’ souls?
Could I get a cool selfie with the Messiah
and maybe make a viral video for TikTok?
Is the Rapture happening now
without sending notifications?
I wish our orders
had all been ready…
Is it now too late
to get a latte?
