Poppa’s becomes Haven Coffee

After almost nine years in business, Poppa's Haven Coffee House has rebranded and launched a crowdfunding campaign to remodel and expand. Owners Jerry and Jane Bennett have sought to provide a community gathering space where anyone can feel at home. Renaming the shop as Haven Coffee felt like the logical next step to simplify the brand and focus on that central concept of being a “haven” for anybody who needs one.

Haven Coffee Company

The Bennetts’ crowdfunding campaign will remodel and expand their space at 800 NW Murray Blvd. This project will allow them to expand their menu and their space, offering more food options and much-needed seating. The concept of crowdfunding invites anyone to partner with them to raise the funds needed to complete the project. When you contribute to the campaign you get a reward in exchange for that contribution. They have shirts, hoodies, mugs, coffee classes and many more options to choose from. Go to to view a video about their campaign and consider making a contribution. The campaign ends on Sun., Nov. 12.

Virtue of the Month: Awe

Awe is deep respect and reverence for the Source of life. It is humility and wonder…“The highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge or Virtue, or Goodness, or Victory, but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!” Nikos Kazantzakis


The Practice of AWE:

I am humble before the power of the Creator. I take time to contemplate and commune. I am aware of the sacredness of life. I cultivate the Divine virtues in my nature. I discern the signs and synchronicities of life. I deepen my connection to Grace.

I am thankful for the gift of Awe. It fills my with wonder.
