Hi Peace Family! Have you heard about the uproar over the new red cups at Starbucks? Apparently, some Christians are offended that they took off the snowflakes and other Christmas-y images and that it’s another war on Christmas. This is Jami Mayberry, and I personally don’t see what all the fuss is about. I think actress and Christian, Candace Cameron Bure said it best yesterday on her Facebook Page:
Starbucks War on Christmas?
It’s a red cup, folks.
Until Starbucks puts a baby Jesus or nativity scene on the cup while saying Merry Christmas, then pulls it because they say it’s offensive, let’s talk. I don’t remember Starbucks ever being a Christian company, do you?
A Santa, a snowflake, some holly, a polar bear, some jingle bells or plain red cup don’t define Christmas for me as a Christian. My relationship with Jesus does.
So, I will joyfully sip on my Starbucks coffee, in a plain red cup, and instead of complaining about the lack of decorations, I will lovingly share the good news of Jesus Christ with friends and co-workers or anyone who’s willing to engage in conversation.
Merry Christmas to all!”
I think she said it just right! It’s just a cup. One way we here at Peace 107 promote Christmas is with our “I Say Merry Christmas” bracelets. We will start handing them out on November 27th and will have a list of all the participating businesses around the Bryan/College Station area you can pick one up. Be sure and listen for locations too, on Peace 107! We love you, Peace Family!
