New Resolution for SBC Convention.

WHEREAS the Southern Baptist Convention commonly hold the Starbucks; refreshing, bold and inspired; having affirmed that it has brings joy to our lives as expressed in the Coffee Drink and Message adopted in the year 2006; and WHEREAS John 2:8-10 describe Jesus turning water into wine, since we are Southern Baptists and are marked as different than worldly leaders we will make Starbucks Coffee the official coffee of the SBC; and WHEREAS our culture has shown a marked inclination to drink Starbucks and the leadership of all religious entities, often citing self serving motives we ask that Starbucks Coffee be offered for free to all messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention; and WHEREAS the greatest testimony to our culture of God's nature, goodness and mercy is to mirror the self sacrifice of Christ's submission to the Cross, we will begin the Starbucks Strategic Coffee Initiative which will place Starbucks Coffee in the hands of every SBC church member; and WHEREAS those Southern Baptists that bear responsibility of any nature, including but not limited to, local church Sunday School teachers, Volunteer Nursery Workers, Trustees, Committee Members, Deacons, Ministers; Associational Directors of Missions, Officers, Entity Trustees, Committee Members and employees; State Convention Officers, Entity Trustees, Committee Members and employees; Southern Baptist Convention Officers, Entity Trustees, Committee Members and employees; are all considered to be leaders in the Kingdom of God; now, therefore, be it RESOLVED that the Messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina, June 13-14, 2006, do affirm the Starbucks Culture of leadership in the Southern Baptist Convention; and be it further RESOLVED that the Southern Baptist leaders at every level and of every calling are now urged to exemplify the greatest servant nature seen in Christ's example of self sacrifice by providing Starbucks Coffee to every gender, age, culture, tribe, tongue and nation who attends the Southern Baptist Convention in Greensboro. [Update] I must give Art Rogers credit for the outline. U da man Art!

Hmmm. Wherever did you find the inspiration?

I'd support it, but I can hear the naysayers already: "You can't use my CP $$$ to buy Starbucks when you can get Maxwell House for 1/2 the price!!!"

Good one Jamie!

Maybe they would want us to have coffee with Chicory.

Hmm ... Starbucks Strategic Coffee Initiative sure sounds a lot like Southern Baptist Coffee Initiative (see my blog post of 8 a.m. this morning 2 and a half hours before yours). I think I should sue for patent infringement.

On second thought, maybe I'll just buy out your idea and hire you as the president of implementing them both. ;)

You know, Kevin, Starbucks is the Walmart of the coffee world.

Great idea, but be careful to avoid the controversial Starbucks cups that caused such at stir at Baylor recently. You wouldn't want the folks in Greensboro to be lead astray.

Thanks for the heads up. I guess I will be blackballed from SBC service. :)

You could just use the cups that have Rick Warren's quote on them. Although..... he's not accepted in all SBC circles either.

Err, on second thought, back to the Maxwell House.

I like the Rick Warren idea--not Maxwell House- unless it is John Maxwell. :)

Kevin, you know I love you, but I will fight you tooth and nail on this resolution. Starbucks. Eeeesh. Where's Adam Feldman when I need him?

(Yes, I know Kevin is kidding. Sorta. =D)

Can you print out that Greensboro, Starbucks map again? I want to glue it in the back of my Bible next to "The Holy Land Today" map.

Nice Marty,

I will bring my Starbucks Aroma Grande and my grinder. We will sell Sumatra along with Vote for Pedro--I mean vote for Wade shirts!
