Hmmm...Hobby Lobby does the same thing.

But the Sabbath is the 7th day - or Saturday. Right? :-)


All I can say is I love the American feel to this! It oozes USA for me and I love it!

Thanks for the information and thanks for the story! If you have time, check out Versailles on Monday, you'll have quite what you need to continue your wonderful fiction! ;-)


When Chick-fil-a first arrived in California people were really baffled by the closed on Sunday thing , I think they get it now.
I just love the cow with the "eat more chikn" sign (and the 3 little chicken sandwichs with just honey on them!)
Great , now I want Chick-fil-a and they are not open!!!!!

When I was a Girl Scout we schlepped cases of cookies door to door and took orders that we delivered at a later date. We also sold calendars in a different "season." Now no one would let their kids walk to astranger's house for any reason. Sad how times have changed. Thank goodness the cookies are still good.

Thanks for coming by Oakland Daily Photo and leaving a comment. Please visit again.


Great post, J! I first discovered Chick-fil-A when I was a chaplain at Baylor University Medical Center (Dallas). Chick-fil-A had a place in the hospital cafeteria...and yes, they were closed on Sunday. They just recently started showing up in California and I love the statement they make by closing on Sunday. I remember while growing up there were lots of places that were closed on Sunday and everybody understood!

There's a hamburger restaurant out here in California called In-N-Out Burger. Their owners are Christian,too. They put scripture verses on the inside rim of their beverage cups. We need more of this kind of subtle evangelization.

Thanks for checking in with me. I hope that you get permission from that priest to post his picture and story. I'd enjoy reading about him. I think that Benedict would probably check with him, too. But, he would also encourage him to say "yes".

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your friend, Alice. Yes, I know how special people in our lives who die can leave a huge void in our lives (and hearts). I will say a prayer for her. May she rest in peace.

And if I may, I'd like to answer Jacob's question. Yes, the Sabbath is on the 7th day (Saturday) for Jews. However, for Christians our Sabbath is Sunday - the first day of the week; the day of the Resurrection; the day of the new creation. When Christ resurrected He gave us the new Sabbath. We look at it completely different than the traditional Sabbath of the Jews. Maybe Dina of Jerusalem Hills Daily Photo can enlighten us on the meaning of the Jewish Sabbath? Dina?

Thanks and God bless.


I like that photo and the story behind it.

Re your comment about joining in Shadow Shot Sunday at some stage- yes indeed, play along whenever you wish :)

storyteller at Sacred Ruminations

My sister introduced me to Chick-fil-A when they showed up in the Cerritos Mall years ago ... and I admire the franchise for honoring Sunday in this way. I remember when just about EVERYTHING but churches were closed on Sundays ... and families spent the time together.
Hugs and blessings,
