Give more presence

in Christmas

Normally I post a photo on Tuesdays, but instead, I wanted to share this video with you today. I’ve posted stuff from the Advent Conspiracy in years past, but the message bears repeating. I know I need to keep hearing it.

Email subscribers, here’s a link to the video, since it won’t show up in your email.

And while we’re on the topic, here are two posts I wrote about this whole idea of Christmas experiences over Christmas stuff.

Good morning Kristen, I just thought I would take a moment to let you know how I appreciate your voice and what you do! I’ve been following you since I saw you on the 700 club and I really enjoy your blog, and I know the Lord is pleased in the effort you put forth here as well! God Bless you and your family!

Our church (Grace Chapel, near Boston) is integrating the Advent Conspiracy into our Christmastime teaching for the second year in a row, and people are really embracing it. One guy took the idea of “giving more presence” a little farther… Glad to see you’re spreading the “give more presence” idea too!
