With Gratitude for Little Red Cups

How Christians should respond to Starbucks

St. Arbucks is no humbug.
His red cup kindles joy.
His cup of cheer is served up with a smile.
The absence of some sentiment is no conspiracy.
This saint who serves all faiths is hardly vile.

We have to be more gracious
when it comes to this dear Saint.
After all his Christmas cup IS red and green.
Our reactions (as believers)
to what others do or don’t
reflect our Lord to others (kind or mean).

We don’t need a cup with captions
to announce what we all know.
A plain red Starbucks cup is fine with me.
It is OUR jobs as Christians
to convey what Christmas means
as our culture toes the line to be PC.
