Sunday- The Advent Conspiracy

This video knocked my socks off. This post on the Advent Conspiracy Blog is great as well.

Fewer gifts.
Relational gifts.
Having some left for those in need.
A radical concept this Christmas indeed.

  1. I love this video. Thank you for posting it.

  2. Thank you so much! I posted a rant last night in response to an article from Fox news. My ideas speak exactly to this. I am lifting your post (giving credit of course) because I think this is vitally important. Thank You again!!!!!

  3. I just linked this video to my blog as well.

    We completely agree with this. We have never done a truly expensive Christmas… we can’t. hehe

    We normally do one gift per child from us and thankfully our relatives do not usually over do it.

    There is always room for improvements though and we will be doing a few. After watching this video, even though I was already planning fairly simple homemade gifts for our extended family, those same gifts just got slightly more simple… with an enclosed note as to why and what was done with that extra money.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

  4. I love the video. So true!!!! I have been so sad about all of the crazy news stories this last week. So glad we are not very caught up in that.
    Blessings,
    Dawn

  5. love that video. couldn’t agree more!

  6. Thanks so much for sharing this! I think I will share it on my blog too and spread the word:)

  7. Well isn’t that ironic; my girlfriend’s church played that video at the beginning of the service yesterday as a preview of their upcoming series. I loved it, personally. I’m actually going to put it up on my blog now!
