Rick Warren to appear on Starbucks cup


(BP) — Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., is utilizing another innovative method of ministry: putting Bible-based quotes on Starbucks coffee cups.

Warren will be part of Starbucks’ campaign called “The Way I See It,” which is a collection of thoughts, opinions and expressions provided by notable figures that now appear on the chain’s coffee cups. In the spring, some cups will begin featuring one of his quotes:

“You are not an accident. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He wanted you alive and created you for a purpose. Focusing on yourself will never reveal your real purpose. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. Only in God do we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance and our destiny.”

The quote will mark the first mention of God in the Starbucks quote campaign.
