The Advent Conspiracy

This makes so much sense on so many levels…

Advent is the great lost season of the liturgical year, lost in a swirl of concerts, parties, and yes, shopping. And I’m as caught up in it as anybody. But it is meant to be a time for contemplation — for “waiting” on the coming of the Lord!

So join the Advent Conspiracy — if your entire church isn’t involved, you can still be a “lone conspirator.” Slow down. Pray. Be mindful of how you spend your time in this holy season. And give just a few less gifts, and use the money you save to help those who are truly in need.

    You should spend Advent with the Orthodox, Carl… :) Nativity Fast!

    Hey, I thought about you the other day — I attended a Ukrainian Rite Church on Sunday and they used the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. It was most beautiful.

    It is beautiful…it is what I have every Sunday. After a sort of bumpy ride this first year, I am now settled completely. It’s good.

    I friended you on Twitter.
