Advent Conspiracy

At the bottom of my blog I have added a fabulous video for you to watch -- if you choose. (Please ignore the other videos at the end -- I had to pirate this off another site since most computers would not download an flv. file).

What happened to Christmas? 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 that we somehow missed its purpose.

Is this what we really want out of Christmas?

What if Christmas became a world-changing event again by turning our focus back to the birth of Christ? What could happen to your family if this focus was celebrated in loud, bold and totally unexpected ways? What if you could actually trade your season of stress for a season celebration and unbelievable memories with your friends and family? What if all of this could save a life at the same time? It can.

Because Christmas can still change the world. This year, give presence.

YAY for this. We started downsizing Christmas last year and it was wonderful. We don't want the kiddos to think that Christmas is all about GIFTS and STUFF and EXCESS and STRESS and, hey, who is Jesus?! Good for you for posting this link, I will be forwarding it to all I know.
