Advent....conspiracy?

The Advent Conspiracy. Have you heard of it? Curious? Watch this....



The story of Christ's birth is a story of promise, hope, and a revolutionary love.

So, what happened? What was once a time to celebrate the birth of a savior has somehow turned into a season of stress, traffic jams, and shopping lists.

And when it's all over, many of us are left with presents to return, looming debt that will take months to pay off, and this empty feeling of missed purpose. Is this what we really want out of Christmas?

What if Christmas became a world-changing event again?


The Advent Conspiracy.

In a nutshell:
Worship fully
$pend less
Give MORE
LOVE all

Are you in?

Spot on! My dh and I have been convicted in recent months for the way we use our financial resources. This Christmas we're giving our boys $350 to spend prayerfully on Samaritan's Purse projects...clean water wells, school books, medicine, etc. They get to choose the project, but they have to pray about it first.

Being exhausted from music ministry in December, I really appreciated the video. Makes me remember what's important.
