Its Meet'n Time

It’s that time again! Time for good beer and even better conversation at the Appalachian Brewing Company. We are meeting this coming Sunday, December 10th at 7:30 PM. We will finish up our series on Personal Resources and Faithfulness. At our last gathering, we discussed vocation (see “A Reason to Get out of Bed” in the November archives). Sunday we will look at Luke 12:22-34. Here are a few things to ponder before our gathering:

1. Do you worry about your money? Your career?
2. Why do you think people worry so much about money?
3. Where do you spend your money? How does your spending reflect your beliefs?
4. Every day brings us requests to support one store and/or boycott another due to some moral issue. How are money and morals connected to each other?
5. Do you think it matters where you spend your money? Why or why not?
6. Have you ever boycotted a business or product because you did not agree with its ideology/philosophy? Why did you do it?

Ah, this should make for lively conversation as we are in the midst of the “spending season.”

On a related note, I’ll be interested to know how many of you went shopping on Black Friday. I’ll confess right up front that Husband and I actually ran to a few places on Black Friday. It was the first time in years and I couldn’t believe the crowds. The parking lots were completely full! Our sanity had obviously left us but we were looking for a few small gifts and wanted to get the purchasing done as soon as possible. We weren’t looking for a 52 inch screen TV or a cool new playstation but alas, we did participate in the American shopping phenomenon known as Black Friday.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

it would also be interesting to see if folks participated in "Cyber Monday" and how online shopping is effected by morals, ethics, etc.
