rethinking Christmas part III

Here’s another interesting site that is dedicated to “restoring the scandal of Christmas by worshipping Jesus through compassion, not consumption.” Although I wouldn’t go so far as to label Christmas a “scandal” (and yes, I get that it aligns with the conspiracy theme), I think this campaign is on the right track.

The Well didn’t sign up to participate in the campaign, although one of our church leaders pointed out to me that we actually commit to the concept year round by attempting to invest between 80 & 90 percent of our offerings in our missional partners and by what we teach about living generous lives.

Anyway, let me know what you think about Advent Conspiracy.
