Every day, we awaken to the wonderful, rich aroma of coffee, providing a gentle push to make it through the morning rush. In the afternoon, as our bodies begin to tire, we look to tea to calm our nerves and help us finish our daily tasks. Those much-needed infusions of energy help keep our bodies going. But what about our minds? Our spirits? How do we give them the encouragement they need to stay inspired, focused, and joyful?
In Inspiration Coffee & Wisdom Tea: Daily Delight at the Divine Coffeehouse, Reverend Peter Vu offers his answer in a collection of inclusive, uplifting, and wisdom-filled messages. For each day of the year, there are two thoughtprovoking quotes, along with a short and encouraging interpretation of each, to boost our mood, mirth, and sense of purpose.
Regardless of who we are and where we come from, we are all a part of one human family, and if we can learn to help out each other, not only will our world become a kinder place, but we will also feel much better about ourselves. Inspiration Coffee & Wisdom Tea provides the blueprint for that reconnection, teaching us to fine-tune our characters and become better people—no matter where the day takes us.
About the Author
My name is Rev. Peter G. Vu, and I have been a Catholic priest of the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan, for twenty years. I was born in Saigon City (currently Ho Chi Minh City), Viet Nam. I was a young boy when the Viet Nam War ended. I witnessed the war and the end of it with great horror and deep appreciation for peace. I had to grow up with the Communist government system and endured lots of hardship with them for over a decade. What helped me and many of my countrymen tremendously during those dark days was our faith and prayers. Hence, my love for prayers and meditations was able to blossom. Also, I was able to learn and exchange new ideas of prayers and mediations with many of my Buddhist friends. We got along quite well in spite of our different faith traditions.
