Advent Conspiracy

Charles Kiser —  December 2, 2008 — Leave a comment

Our house churches just started a new series of conversations on the first season of the Christian calendar: Advent. Advent is about waiting for God to arrive. The Advent season highlights two ways God’s people have waited throughout the ages: 1) for the first coming of the Messiah—in the incarnation; and 2) for the second coming of the Messiah—in the eschaton.

What would it look like if the anticipation required in Advent shaped our lives? What if we waited for God through the holidays instead of waiting for presents? In tough economic times, what would it look like to wait for God to arrive?

The churches behind the Advent Conspiracy think it looks like people who trust God fully, spend less, give more and love all.

What if more and more people lived into this Advent conspiracy?

Christmas might just be an enjoyable holiday again.

More to come about ways Advent will shape the Storyline Community…
