Here is a fresh new way for people to start looking at Christmas. Actually, it is the oldest, and truest, original way. Christmas is the birth of our Savior Jesus, but sadly many have forgotten the message and cashed it in for commercialism. During this Advent season at my church our pastor has been inspiring us to re-think Christmas. He has mentioned several great ideas to bring tangible gift giving front and center, so we will be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. Below are some great links and a very well done video to drive home the point that I am trying to make with this post. I know tat I am going to give some of these ideas a go, and I’ll be sure to come back and blog a full report for you all. I also coppied a blog post from AC that I really loved, it has a link to an article where 2 churches came to gether to bring hope and the love of Jesus to others. May this stir up something deep inside and allow you to be moved and move into giving to others beyond what you usually would. Blessings and have a Christ-like Christmas. Don’t forget to come back and share with me too what you did different this Christmas.
Here’s an interesting story that went down in Las Vegas this week about two churches from different denominations uniting to support Advent Conspiracy. Gang, this is what it’s all about. The kingdom of God isn’t about denominations, religion or whatever barriers we’ve placed on our faith. It’s about celebrating Jesus and loving others the way He does. Read the article here.
