Advent Conspiracy, Day 20

Love All As the year draws to a close, let’s look back in gratefulness for all God has provided. This is a tough concept in the midst of creating wish lists and thinking through what we want and “need.” Today’s activity is not only about giving to those in need, but doing so from a

Throughout Advent we’ve looked at one of the primary focal points of American Christmas traditions: gift giving. Think about the kind of effort and time that goes into gift buying each year (assuming you aren’t a serial gift card giver). At this point in the month you’ve maybe had your fill of sleuthing out the

Worship Fully Suppose someone said, “Tell me about Christmas, I want to see if there’s really hope there.” Would you limit your response to who was at the manger, what gifts the wise men brought, and what the shepherds saw? You might include those items, but they would be details in a much larger story.

Give More “Love hoards” Doesn’t make for a compelling bumper sticker, does it? No one would say love hoards, let alone promote such an absurd idea! If we’re honest, there are times when we look out for ourselves more than others. To be a follower of Jesus means to follow him in his generosity and

Vintage Church Downtown and Durham But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?

Worship Fully At some point in our journey we learn to say “thank you” when a gift is given. Depending on the expectations of family or the circles we run in, a thank you card may be expected. However, there is even a formula for writing a thank you card, allowing us to maintain propriety

Today’s Scripture Passage Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they chose the places of honor, saying to them, “When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest someone more distinguished than you be invited by him,

We’re on Day 12 of Advent Conspiracy! The tenet we’re practicing today is to “Love All.” Given Jesus’ life and teaching, this concept should be an easy one for his followers, and yet we often struggle with pride, self-reliance, and judgment. From Advent Conspiracy: Making Christmas Meaningful Again by Rick McKinley, Chris Seay, and Greg

During this season full of movement and tasks, it may seem that a prayer is not a proper activity. Perhaps it’s even frustrating to pull out today’s Advent card and see that the activity is to pray. “I don’t have time for that” you may think. This sentiment of busyness shows how far we’ve come
