  • A priceless, tasty faith

    The first thing I asked Sean Gebhard was, "Do people think you're crazy?"

    Sean runs the Upper Room Café in Mount Dora, a cute little town about 40 miles east of where I live in central Florida.

    I had heard about his "Holy Spirit-filled café" upstairs in the historic Renaissance Building, and the last time we were in Mount Dora I stopped in to see it for myself.
