Since my commitment during the Lenten Season involves (among other things) drinking only unadulterated black coffee, pure black, green, or red leaf tea, natural cranberry juice, orange juice, and high quality H2O, I ordered a tall black coffee from Starbucks in lieu of my typical half cinnamon vanilla latte or chai tea latte with a shot of espresso. The sleeve on my cup was advertising Tazo brand leaf tea and included a inspirational saying that read, "YOUR NEXT ‘ACTION ITEM’: DO AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE." I agree and disagree with the catchy and quasi-gimmicky phrase. I’ll sum up my thoughts in two short sentences and leave it there for your comments and reflection.
Apathy is violent.
Sabbath is elusive.
