Enter The Story

"The story of Christ's birth is a story of promise, hope, and a revolutionary love.
So, what happened? What was once a time to celebrate the birth of a savior has somehow turned into a season of stress, traffic jams, and shopping lists.
And when it's all over, many of us are left with presents to return, looming debt that will take months to pay off, and this empty feeling of missed purpose. Is this what we really want out of Christmas?
What if Christmas became a world-changing event again?"

What is the Christmas season to me? What do I want it to be? What does it bring out in me? Maybe this is a challenge for all of us, to step back and re-evaluate the Reason for the Season.

great post Amanda! I think it is important to ask ourselves how Jesus would celebrate any holiday. Thanks for posting on Advent Conspiracy!

I hope your Thanksgiving is full of thanks and love!
