There are two topics of conversation at my nearby Starbucks:

1) Real estate

2) The Bible.

Real estate agents with iPads explain things to would-be buyers. The market is hot, they tell them. Multiple offers, they say. We have to be quick.

The Bible people read Bible passages aloud. Sometimes they pray. Sometimes they pray while holding hands.

Every once in a while the conversations merge. The talk becomes about both the Bible and real estate, Jesus and square footage.

I am an atheist who rents.
