We don’t really do the advent calendar thing. We talk about advent, about love, about how to love, about how to serve…but the whole chocolate thing, well, we’re not against it but we don’t really ‘do’ it either.
But this year I’ve heard of a couple of advent things that I really love. One is a link I got sent from a friend on Pinterest from The Imagination Tree…think this is such a good idea, I may even try a version of this…minus the elf probably!!
The Advent Conspiracy
Our church is focusing on this…check it out. I have had so many conversations with friends about the overwhelming nature of Christmas and how it takes on this life of its own and somehow, somewhere you lose focus, lose the calm, the point of it all.
The Advent Conspiracy, all about turning Christmas on its head…Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, Love All.
All about changing the world.
And if we can think about those in the world that have so much less than us, if we can give some of resources, time to those who are lonely, poor…what better way to celebrate Advent.
