There are Sabbath Heroes, but there are Sabbath Businesses too. We all know about the Chick-Fil-A’s of the world, but what about the local entities? I’ve been kicking around an idea for a bit now on how to recognize them.
My goal would be to create a Sabbath Pages that lists businesses in the local area that make some kind of concession to the Sabbath (closed Sundays, skeleton staff Sundays, open Sundays but prefer not to do business then and willing to give a discount of some kind to customers who don’t expect work on Sundays, etc.). Then copies would be distributed through local sabbath-observing churches.
I would like your advice as to ways and means. How do I get the information on the businesses? What sort of time and money commitment would I be looking at? How might I cover costs from outside sources? Would Christians of various sorts be interested in this sort of thing? Would their pastors? Are there already organizations out there whose efforts I might be duplicating in part?
