Ragamuffins loves and serves the community by cultivating a place to connect around handcrafted coffee.
- Connect: Ragamuffins is a safe place for people to connect to others in meaningful community. From the baristas that serve your drink to each customer that sits in our coffee house, Ragamuffins is thoughtful of people and the relationships that enrich our lives.
- Cultivate: Ragamuffins is intentional about cultivating community. We want relationships to go deep. We think artisanal coffee drinks and good conversations go hand in hand. Ragamuffins supports community partnerships and events that encourage relationships to thrive.
Brennan Manning’s book The Ragamuffin Gospel heavily influenced the people of Redemption Community Church, the owner of Ragamuffins. In it, Manning describes how people who receive God’s love and grace are spiritual ragamuffins. They get beat up, bedraggled, and burnt out, but God never stops loving and pursuing them.
Here’s how Manning portrays ragamuffins:
When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes. I believe and I doubt, I hope and get discouraged, I love and I hate, I feel bad about feeling good, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I am trusting and suspicious. I am honest and I still play games. Aristotle said I am a rational animal; I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer.
To live by grace means to acknowledge my whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting my shadow side I learn who I am and what God's grace means. As Thomas Merton put it, "A saint is not someone who is good but who experiences the goodness of God.”
My deepest awareness of myself is that I am deeply loved by Jesus Christ and I have done nothing to earn it or deserve it.
We hope you experience the goodness of God in this community of Ragamuffins, people changing by his love and grace.
