Join the Advent Conspiracy
This has nothing to do with the Geek Conspiracy. This one is real, and you can — and should — be a part of it. My friend Tim has written about this, and you’ll see it popping up all over the blogosphere and Facebook. Don’t let its ubiquity scare you off. Not everything that’s popular is bad. Another blogging friend, Laura Toepfer has written about this, and she quotes a bit from the [AC] blog:
I’m worried that people are being guilted into Advent Conspiracy. The last thing we want is for people to feel like they can’t shop because their church or family member or friend told them it’s not the [AC] way. Because that’s not true. So what is the [AC] way? Simply this: We want to encourage people to do Christmas differently by worshiping Jesus first before anything else….Here’s what’s not a beautiful thing: Getting all bent out of shape and stressed out because someone said “we” don’t want you to buy gifts. Kind of a silly thing, especially since one of [AC]’s intentions is to help people relax and enjoy the season. The point is, make it personal by making it about Jesus first. The rest is just details.
What are you waiting for? Join the Advent Conspiracy!
