They advocate four points to change the way you celebrate Christmas this year.
- Worship fully
- Spend less
- Give more
- Love all
Now, these people aren't going to suggest that we stop giving presents altogether. But they do have some great ideas on how to be better stewards of our resources this season, something which I found very helpful. One of the places they link to is RethinkingChristmas.com, which has some brilliant ideas on alternative gift ideas. Great stuff. This is one website that I will be coming back to again and again.
And so, I invite you to come along with me, as we give thanks this week, and begin to look towards the birth of our Lord. Join the Conspiracy. Be subversive. Give joyfully. Love radically. Be the in-breaking of the Kingdom. Wait with me, in a new way, this Advent season. Prepare the way of the Lord.
