Intense, reflective and introspective. Excellent writing.

God bless~
What a wonderful piece - I love how you painted the scene for us, then showed us the beauty of it. And I think you are right. Nicely done!
Absorbing cultural profile, with a strong message building through to a challenge to our own cultural assumptions.
Thought-provoking material.
This is a timely piece. The world is changing quite rapidly and each year it seems farther away from God's grand design. I could easily see this as a chapter of a Bible study with thought-provoking questions at the end of each session. Not only did you deliver a wonderful lesson, but you transported me to a foreign land and made it come alive before my eyes. Congratulations on your EC. Happy Dance!
No matter where in the world, a cup and saucer filled with coffee or tea causes us to linger and listen...and brings people together. congrats on your placing for this interesting well written piece!
Fascinating to learn of the middle Eastern custom of coffee and conversation.
Well written and interesting piece.
