advent conspiracy

My friend mentioned this on Facebook so I looked it up. It’s pretty neat! It sort of goes with my Grinch-y post a few days ago. Things have been pretty crazy for my family over the last year and I just don’t want Christmas to get lost in that craze. I really want to make this Christmas special so I’ve been looking for ideas. I like the concept behind Advent Conspiracy. Check it out!

Christmas can (still) change the world.

“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 concept behind Advent Conspiracy is simple:

♥ Worship Fully
(It starts with Jesus. It ends with Jesus)

♥ Spend less
(We’re asking people to consider buying ONE LESS GIFT this Christmas. Just one.)

♥ Give more
(God’s gift to us was a relationship built on love.)

♥ Love all
(When Jesus loved, He loved in ways never imagined. Though rich, he became poor to love the poor, the forgotten, the overlooked and the sick.)

“Nobody wants a Christmas worth forgetting”

I love Christmas!
