American culture has constructed a sort of liturgical season out of the days following Thanksgiving (Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday / Giving Tuesday). Two thoughts: 1) it is fascinating that Sunday has been spared! Perhaps an unconscious nod to the sacred? 2) The U.S. church could put forth a series of feast days to counter this. If the culture is going to treat this week liturgically, why not counter with some prophetic wisdom? What feast days would you propose?
