My church is participating in the Advent Conspiracy. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, we get to hear sermons on the following:
- Worship fully
- Spend less
- Give more
- Love all
Today our pastor challenged us to:
- Reject radical consumerism for radical worship
- Desire presence not presents
- Fund ten water wells in Mozambique
I want to focus on Jesus.
Here are a few things that I'm doing differently this year.
I'm participating in an online Advent Study through the Good Morning Girls. I already had YouVersion (Bible app) downloaded to my Kindle. So now I go online each morning to read a portion of Scripture and a related devotional. I love how the Good Morning Girls always recommend using the SOAP method (Scripture, observation, application and prayer). If you subscribe to their blog, you will receive a study guide free.
I'm getting up early in the morning to have my daily quiet time.
I'm listening to Christmas music at home and in my car.
I'm sitting and enjoying my Christmas tree.
I'm rereading Jennifer Walker's Keeping Christ as Christmas.
Maybe you can help me out. What are you doing differently this Christmas season?
Blessings and love,
