The theme for Advent this year at Westheights is called The Advent Conspiracy. During this time we are encouraging the people in our church to re-imagine Christmas. Rather than just go through the same (sometimes thoughtless) rituals ask yourself, “What could I do differently?” “Where could I make adjustments in my spending so that I could become more generous to the needs of this world and not just my own family?” Traditions are great, especially at Christmas, but it is important to once in a while stop and reflect and ask, “Why are we doing this?”

I found a great article in Faith Today that describes very much what we are emphasizing in our church this Advent. Take a look at the article and let me know what you think.

The article is called Five Steps to a Simpler (and Holier) Christmas.  It can be found by clicking on the link

According to the EFC website, Faith Today, one of Canada’s leading Christian magazines, exists to connect, equip and inform Evangelicals in Canada.
