MAY I TAKE YOUR ORDER?

Lots of people make jokes but the concept of a Starbucks church actually isn't that far-fetched. You and a small group of your friends could occupy the couches in one corner for an hour or so. Most Starbucks are wi-fi now so someone's lapper could call up an interesting sermon or some other video devotional. If you're not particulary sacramental, you could all share a half-caf veinte latte and a low-fat blueberry scone. And if you ever want to go high-church, someone's designed a chasuble for you.

Props to Jen.

For what liturgical season is this intended? I guess maybe it is the one in the back of the book, you know, the one I overlooked.

Maybe it's for the commemoration of St. Drogo, the patron saint of coffee and coffeehouses.

The design itself is not overly bad - certainly not as bad as some other vestments....but all the different robes on this site lead me to beg the question: don't these churches follow liturgical colors?

There really should only be a handful of vestment colors: green, red, while, purple, and potentially blue, black, and gold.

When are these vestments even used?

Matt,
Why would they follow traditional liturgical colors when they don't follow traditional liturgy?
They have discarded the traditional prayer book, the traditional Bible and now all pretense of being the traditional Anglican/Christian church.

this is obviously a gold vestment, which can be used for most major feast days.

I would like this design if it were a different color. too muddy here.
