Now Craig Goodwin points us to a fellow foodie who is questioning a door knocker that a local church hung on her knob. In the bag were several non-offensive items. But:
Then I got to the coupon for McDonald’s. Stapled to it was a card that read “Come visit us on Sunday… Then go for a Sundae!” and quoted the Psalms “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” I kid you not.
Craig goes on from there to ask, Is is a sin for church’s to give away McDonald’s gift cards? His response, in part:
If churches hope to connect with these folks they can’t be indifferent about food and food choices. As we’re finding with our Orthodox fast, there are rich resources in the Christian tradition to draw from in engaging issues around food. It’s not just that Christians need to get on board with the what’s popular with food, the church actually has some wonderful perspectives to add to the conversation.
