The Christian Who Didn’t Care About a Cup

Monday, November 9th, 2015

I will be the first to say that I don’t agree with all of the views that Starbucks has shared over the last few years. I will be the first to say that I don’t drink their coffee. But it is not because of the color or design of their cup or the beliefs of…

We were on vacation. That is what I will tell my children when they ask where we were the day that the Supreme Court made a ruling that would allow same-sex marriage nationwide. I had signed off of social media for the week… I had lost track of my days and dates… and our biggest…
