In light of my Jammin’ June Gift Offering shared via an email and the STS Facebook Page,
I wanted to share an email interaction I had this morning.
First, I want to say, my intention is not to “out” anyone, nor to defend my own position. I always welcome any and all input from my friends near and far. I just feel that this particular email presented a valid challenge that I would like to discuss with all of you!
Here was the question posed in response to my graphic above.
“This is very interesting. Why in the world would I want to enter to win a Starbucks gift card?? They stand for everything we’re against. They’re pro-abortion! I haven’t been in a Starbucks for years and don’t plan to go anytime soon. . . .”
Here is my response:
“I completely understand and respect your decision to stay away from Starbucks!! Trust me, these things are a daily consideration for me—Disney, pretty much ANY TV shows, Target, Apple Products….…
Instead of a boycott, at THIS POINT, I feel God continues to lead me into those places to BE THE LIGHT! SO FAR—in my best pursuit of His direction, He has not led me to participate in any particular boycott. He has also never, at THIS POINT called me to pray in front of an abortion mill. Instead, He calls me to open/equip PRC’s placed beside or in front of them.
I honor and respect those like you, He does call to those specific things.
He has given me my own battlefront which I endeavor to honor every day.
Thank you for your kind and ongoing connection with me. I appreciate and value your input!!
I would love to hear from you, my Pro-Life Ministry Friends (I make that assumption based upon your being here, on this website!)
What is your take/calling/leaning in these areas?
Do you boycott? If so who?
I would love to hear!!
