“Stories of Connection: Stories of Jesus”

Offered by Rev. Sarah Condon

Over the course of three weeks, we will see how our own community’s connections speak to the words of scripture. It may be through suffering, or mercy, or God’s audacious love. It is probably all of the above. We will look at stories from the news, from our neighborhoods, and from our own lives. Join us!

Sarah Condon is a staff writer for Mockingbird Ministries, an assistant for Pastoral Care at St. Martin’s Church, and a regular contributor to the Mockingcast. Most importantly, she is mother to her two babies: Neil and Annie. And she is the proud wife of Josh Condon, Rector of Holy Spirit Church.

Carrie has been bringing small, and then large, children to church since 2008. She is the wife, daughter, sister, and sister-in-law of Episcopal priests, and her husband, Neil, is the rector at Palmer Memorial here in Houston.

She works in administration at Rice University, and she also is a blogger at curessa.wordpress.com, where she writes about food and entertaining, life in a clergy family, and her views on faith. Her writing has been featured on Episcopal Cafe.

 About the Coffee

Holy Spirit Episcopal Church is pleased to offer two specialty coffees for your enjoyment.
Each type is a “blend” of Arabica coffees from around the world and is roasted, by our very own Rich Brzoska, in small batches to a
specific roasting level before being blended into the final product.
We hope you will join us and enjoy!

Holy Spirit Blend

In honor and recognition of Holy Spirit’s sister church in Uganda (Africa) and church & school in Costa Rica (Central America), we have created a special blend of beans from both countries.

Uganda is more likely known for its “Robusta” type of coffee (it is the #2 producer in the world behind Brazil for this type of coffee), they do have a great Arabica type coffee that is used in this blend (Uganda Bugisu).  Costa Rica, is well know around the world for there great Arabica beans (if you have ever had a Starbucks espresso coffee, you are drinking one of Costa Rica’s coffees).  Costa Rica El Conquistador Tarrazu is used in this blend.

This blend is a “Medium Dark Roast” with loads of flavor.  When you smell the roasted beans (prior to grinding), it has a distinctive chocolate aroma.  When ground and brewed, that chocolate aroma is replaced by a strong “nut flavor.”  This blend also has a distinctive 2nd aftertaste, which is of an “earthy” nature.  The best description I have heard is that “it as the sensation of standing in the middle of a forest.”

Firehouse Blend

This coffee is a blend of beans from three different continents; Africa (Ethiopia); South America (Peru); and North America (Mexico).  It is a “light roast” coffee, where the flavor of the beans, and not roasting style, is prevalent in the flavor of the coffee.  Being a light roast also means that the coffee has a higher caffeine content then darker roasted coffee (the longer coffee is roasted, the more caffeine is roasted off the final product).

You will note that this coffee has a distinctive “nutty” flavor at first taste, followed by a very subtle “floral” aftertaste (distinctive characteristics of the type of beans used in the blend).

This blend was originally formulated for Firefighters, to give them a great tasting coffee (that does not become overly bitter when left standing), with ample caffeine (for those long days at the fire station).
