advent conspiracy

Via an email from The Work of the People, I found out about Advent Conspiracy, a campaign to restore "the scandal of Christmas by substituting compassion for consumption." Their aim is to help people to avoid "being consumed by consumerism" this Christmas, by a fourfold commitment:
  • worship more
  • spend less
  • give more
  • love all
They also ask that participating churches give at least 25% of their Christmas offering to clean water projects. (What a "coincidence": my sermon last Sunday was largely about lack of drinking water and its effects of children world-wide.)

Check out their website for more information!
