I have a few choice words for Joshua Feuerstein – the gentleman who’s making a fuss about Starbucks’ red holiday cup.
As you know, I am a coffee drinker and I love conversations. In fact, I’m a big fan of what a friend calls “caffeinated conversations.”
Here’s the thing, I’m also a Christian. I may not have read the Bible cover to cover but I can assure you of the following: there is absolutely no reference or mention of a red coffee cup in the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. The meaning of Christmas is not now, nor has it ever been influenced by the color of a Starbucks coffee cup.
Mr. Feuerstein, you’ve had your 15 minutes and now it’s time for you to move on. Please consider using your platform to encourage people to feed the hungry, help the homeless, be kind to their neighbors and, more importantly, to be Christlike in all that they do. That would be a way to make a difference to Christmas season.
We shouldn’t need the words “Merry Christmas” imprinted on a coffee cup to remind us of the meaning of Christmas.
I know it’s early, but I wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas.
