Christians and Coffee Cups

…….and so it is.

Emily C. Heath

It’s early November and already this year’s installment of the so-called “War on Christmas” has begun. All over social media I’m seeing rants from angry Christians who are trying to “Keep Christ in Christmas”. And the first volley of shots has already been launched against an unlikely target: Starbucks.

Please tell me what you think! Go on! Leave a comment! It's ok! :-)
