Minnesota pastor’s viral post about people drinking coffee in church ignites fiery debate

A post by Pastor John Piper of Minnesota on Saturday, Sept. 30, has sparked a heated debate about the appropriateness of drinking coffee during Sunday church services.

“Can we reassess whether Sunday coffee-sipping in the sanctuary fits?” asked Piper on X, formerly known as Twitter. 

Piper, a Baptist, is a theologian, pastor and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis. 

He added, “Prayer is an exercise in humility, and sipping coffee during the prayer experience seems to be something casual and irreverent, not befitting being in the focused presence of royalty … Overall, this seems like something that should be avoided.”
