Theology in a Tea Commercial? Rarely does an advertisement, radio, or television commercial really catch my attention. This one did.

Introducing a new line, Lipton’s Herbal Iced Tea commercial uses the tagline, “Stop Chuggin’ – Start Sippin.’” I think there is some good theology there.

How often do I find myself running ahead from some unhappy past or rushing ahead to some fret-filled or uncertain future! Rarely do I savor each and every moment. Prayer helps me change that – especially the daily prayers of the church. It helps me be present.

So, my new moto - “Stop Chuggin’ – Start Sippin!’” How about some tea, with Evening Prayer or Compline this week?
