Bo's Cafe is like Cheers - it's a place where problems can be aired and resolved in the company of friends. The patrons come together regularly for loving support. We all need this kind of support. I'm blessed because I'm already part of a group that meets regularly in a similar fashion (Wednesday mornings at an Einstein Bros. Bagels). I can personally attest to the blessing of this in my life. There is a tremendous freedom in being able to talk about anything and everything that's on my mind (work, husband, kids, etc.) and knowing that I'll get honest feedback and loving encouragement. This is God's grace.
Although Bo's Cafe is fiction, the story it tells is all too common. So many of us fall into the trap of trying to rely on our own inner strength, which results in things falling apart all around us. Steven's tale is the sharing of good Christian counseling. I strongly recommend this book - read it and share it with others.
