On Singing at Chick-Fil-A

Today we took the junior high group to a local Chick-Fil-A, as promised. They sang their song, ate their chicken, and got a really great welcome from the staff. The manager knew we were coming, so she had prepared this quote to share with us about why Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday:

I was not so committed to financial success that I was willing to abandon my principles and priorities. One of the most visible examples of this is our decision to close on Sunday. Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and of directing our attention to things that mattered more than our business.

Truett Cathy, Chick-Fil-A founder

    I love this. The boys watched your version, then we watched the original, and then Simon said, “I love Chick Fil A, but we don’t go there any more because they do something that we don’t support.” Made me realize that perhaps we need to have another conversation so he knows a bit more why it is we don’t support them, rather than just jumping on the boycotting bandwagon. Nevertheless, I love that your kids rallied around this effort – and hearing you laugh behind the camera was awesome. You’re doing good work, my friend.
