But there was something not quite right about this one. It began,
"In order to allow our employees to enjoy Good Friday with their families..."
I winced. So this is what it has come to... Good Friday is merely another holiday to 'enjoy at home with one's family.' Talk about losing the true meaning!
I at least changed it to read, "In order to commemorate Good Friday and celebrate Easter Sunday..." I may not have gone far enough, but I don't own the business, and my employer once made me take the fish symbol off the back of my company truck.
But to me, Good Friday is not a day to enjoy with my family. It is a day to remember that it was for me that Jesus went to the cross. It was my sin that put him there. And I can't 'enjoy' thinking of that.
But Sunday's coming, and that'll be the time for joy!
