Upstairs in a historic building now known for its coffee and books, you’ll find an old room. After getting up the creaking staircase, down the short and even creakier hallway, and through the 8ft. doorway you’ll discover a decently sized room, old wooden floors, large bay window overlooking main street, and a fireplace display to complete the scene.
Tomato bisque, potato soup, rolls, and sweet tea. If you didn’t make it last Sunday, you sure missed out.
Sitting in a chair over by the window, cradling my bowl of soup, I look up to see someone walk in through the door. A familiar, but new face. Then a second one. Then a third. They continue to file in, finding a seat, greeting all of us in the room, and the six members from East Bristol church of Christ settle down completing our circle. I immediately get up, along with a few others and the mission to find more chairs begins.
