Conspiratorial Magi

In the warm glow of “Black Friday” I thought it would make sense to introduce you to The Advent Conspiracy. If you’re not familiar with them, it’s a Christian movement that seeks to recapture the season of Advent amid the surrounding culture of out-of-control consumerism. Their motto gets right to the point: Worship More — Spend Less — Give More — Love All.

This has nothing in common with the sometimes mean-spirited culture war crowd, however. It’s simply a move to reexamine our spiritual and financial priorities in the weeks leading up to Christmas. And I’m a big fan.

Perhaps the most inspiring piece of this are the short YouTube videos they produce. If they can’t get you jazzed to approach Advent in a new way then, well, you’re probably not reading this blog. All the videos are great but here’s one you really shouldn’t miss. 

In the words of the Grinch, “Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more.”
