Nobody Wants a Christmas Worth Forgetting.

Christmas time can be a crazy time for many of us.

Presents. Shopping. Parties. Food. Family. Friends. Boney M.

Now all these things are good things (except Boney M I would argue), but sometimes they can overwhelm us and steal our peace and joy.

And so, as part of your build up to Christmas this year, why don’t you make a conscious decision to do things a little differently this holiday season? Don’t just give presents, but give presence too. That means investing in the relationships around you. Spending quality time with the people you love. Going out of your way to be generous to someone in need, or to do something for someone else.

The Advent Conspiracy is an international movement centered around bringing a deeper meaning to Christmas. The movement is characterized by its four founding principles: Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, Love All. Here is a short 3-min video I did on the conspiracy to LOVE ALL this season…

Check it out. It might just make your Christmas an unforgettable one.

  1. What a powerful clip and message. “loving all’ is so important, no matter if it’s a friends, family member, or stranger. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love your emphasis on love being a verb and being a choice that we make. I try to remind myself that everyone I come in contact with is a being made in the image of God – that also helps me to love all.

  3. Tom,

    Thanks for the reminder … it’s so easy to forget with the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season that it really all comes down to that life-giving bundle of grace-filled Love delivered upon this earth nearly 2,000 years ago. May you and your family have a blessed Christmas.
