Oh, the season is upon us. For everyone it has a different meaning. And different priorities. In my life, I am working on making memories, living life and focusing on my family. At the end of the month of gratitude, I want the thankfulness to continue. And I want to be able to give to those less fortunate. I am so blessed in this life. My family is so blessed.
Our church has been participating in the Advent Conspiracy since its inception. The Advent Conspiracy encourages us to give less purchased gifts and give more of our time this holiday season. And then to take the money that would have been used and donate it. The money is given to groups that are digging fresh water wells in Africa. This year our church is focusing on wells in Zimbabwe. You and I turn the faucet on for water. Thousands of people around the world die each day from unclean drinking water. This is the chance to make a difference. A real difference. A lasting gift to someone you don’t know.
Please watch this video and take the impact into your own life. It is moving. It is powerful. It is my hope and wish for you this holiday season. Enjoy your family. Enjoy your time together. Give time. Give less gifts. Give yourself.
Jesus is the reason for the season.
