Here are two thoughtful posts/articles that I wanted to share:
- The War on Thanksgiving. From The Huffington Post. “On a day about being thankful for what we have, many people will be rushing out to buy more stuff. Rather than enjoying time spent with family or friends, they will rush out to battle strangers in an effort to buy more distractions.”
- The Sale that Stole Thanksgiving. From the Her-Meneutics blog of Christianity Today. “I find myself dismayed at the backward encroachment of Black Friday….It’s a regrettable and embarrassing move that suggests what we value most is not in fact family, religion, history, or even the cherished notion that God has blessed America.”
- Updating this post with a new link. Worthwhile article from Dr. Sandra Glahn: How to Shop Like a Christian on Black Friday.
