The Advent Conspiracy

Before the mania hits like a Mack Truck next Friday, I want to challenge you to think about your Christmas spending and habits. THINK HARD! Is it worth what you do? Does what you do really reflect the celebration of Christ? Or are you driven by social and cultural pressures to do things that you really don't have to? Watch this and consider. This is from They have some great suggestions, but I don't want you to just look at this as a fundraising pitch for them. Just take it as an opportunity to stop and think for you. If not their project, what? Foreign Missions? Hunger Relief? The family down the street, and not just with trinkets, but with help they need? Shevet Achim Ministry? A church? Getting your family what they need instead of what they want?

Just something to consider....
