Two men, sipping on coffee at Starbucks. Obviously, they had just finished exercising and were enjoying some post-workout conversation. John and Phil were both retired businessmen in Dallas, Texas; however, this was not your typical middle of the week-latte-business meeting. I first noticed them as they pulled up to the Starbucks in cars I thought only sports stars and famous Hollywood actors drove. Even in the prestigious North Dallas area where McDonald’s has chandeliers (seriously, no joke), few people drove around in cars like this.
So, hopefully now when you read or re-read some of the posts about John and Phil, this little bit of background will help. The things I learned from John and Phil helped develop me into a better Jesus follower, husband, father, friend, and Executive Pastor.
