Advent Conspiracy

This is not a post against Christmas.  It is a post against the way we "celebrate" Christmas.  My last Christmas post pretty much addressed this, so I won't go into it again here in detail.  The point it this: you're going to buy a bunch of stuff for people who don't need it, when instead you could be using that money to bring people clean water who will otherwise die because of it, or many other worthwhile things that help people.  Christmas is the celebration of the life of Jesus.  Let's honor that life by heeding His teachings and helping those around us, by being His hands and feet in a broken world.  Check out this website for more ideas and for some videos you can share with those around you.  If nothing else, you should at least take two minutes to view the video on the top right of the home page.  You can make a huge difference.  The only question is will you?
