Advent Conspiracy

I posted this initially in September, but am bumping it up so that it’s on your mind in this final stretch of the rush toward Christmas.

It’s not too early to be thinking about Christmas. You know the decorations will soon be in the stores. Are you disappointed with the commercialism and the crush of the crowds and the stress and the co$t? Then check out Advent Conspiracy.

From the webpage:

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?

There’s a DVD available with four short videos that can be discussion starters, and there’s a book with discussion guide, too.

Encourage a different attitude in your young adult ministry, campus, or church. Join the conspiracy.
