From coffee bean's discovery by 9th century Ethiopian Muslims to being condemned as "Satan's drink" by medieval Christians to becoming an integral part of Passover in America, coffee has fueled prayer and shaped religious culture for generations. Hingham resident and Episcopal priest, Tim Schenck, will explore the fascinating-and controversial-history of the world's favorite beverage with reflections based on his new book Holy Grounds: The Surprising Spiritual Connection Between Coffee and Faith-From Dancing Goats to Satan's Brew.
