Coca-Cola & the Church

I have a nasty habit of reading the church into whatever I’m reading, even when I’m reading about Coca-Cola:

While Pepsi roared to life under the direction of Al Steele, a Coca-Cola shareholder wrote that the Company “slumbers peacefully, self-satisfied with all of its past progress.”…Bottling plants were celebrating their fiftieth anniversaries; many of the third-generation bottlers took profits for granted. They lacked the fire in the belly that characterized their hungry Pepsi counterparts, and they hated change almost as much as Woodruff… “In 1951,” Sledge told one audience, “1,535,406 people died in the United States. In spite of our best efforts, this large group has been eliminated as consumers of our product.” (Mark Pendergrast, For God, Country, & Coca-Cola)

I'm a grateful husband, father, oupa, and pastor of Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills. I love learning, writing, and encouraging. I'm on a lifelong quest to become a humble, gracious old man.
