YouTubesday: Worshipping the Consumerism Gods

Advent Conspiracy is a great initiative to encourage churches to spend the holiday seasoning give rather then buying. This is a great promo.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. We started reducing last year and plant to continue this year. It’s pretty easy to do it in our family, but the extended family takes more time…Last year for the adult draw, we asked for donations only to charities. I think that got them thinking differently this year.

    Also, If you haven’t seen the mockumentary, “What Would Jesus Buy”…see it. Some of the behaviors of folks in there are eye-opening to say the least.

    I haven’t but I’m looking forward to seeing What Would Jesus Buy. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. How did you find the site?

    Peace,

    One word, HuH?

    This is in direct conflict with what my parents taught me growing up. To take of myself.
