Here's taking coffee shop evangelism the extra mile. Starting this spring, the ubiquitous Starbucks will feature a quote from Rick Warren on some of its cups as part of a campaign called "The Way I See It." Warren joins 63 othersmusicians, athletes, scientists, and cultural criticsin Starbucks' effort to spur coffee house debate. None of the previous quotes have been blatantly religious; some have mentioned faith in humanity.
Warren decided to offer his quote after reading a "cup quote" on evolution by paleontologist Louise Leakey. Starbucks, which was soliciting customer contributions at the time, accepted Warren's submission.
"Focusing on yourself will never reveal your real purpose," the Purpose Driven author and pastor wrote. "Only in God do we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, and our destiny."
The cups also say that opinions "do not necessarily reflect the views of Starbucks."
