Advent Challenge 2010!

Yesterday we were confronted with the reality that Advent can be a selfish time if we’re not careful. I don’t remember the exact numbers (Josh put the quiz together), but we as Americans spend $450 billion every year on Christmas and it only takes $10 Billion to secure fresh water for the entire world? Wow.

So what do we do? Can we fix the world’s water problems? Realistically, no. This challenge isn’t about being overwhelmed. It’s about letting your light shine, in a specific way, perhaps into a specific person.

Ideas abound regarding how to share our joy this Christmas. We mentioned a few yesterday and we are anxious to see where the Holy Spirit will lead individuals in our congregation over the next several weeks.

Don’t wait for someone else to be first – share your faith, share your money, bless someone freely, encourage people with Scripture…then write your story out, let us know what you did, and we’ll compile them and share them as the season draws to a close.

Pray that we as a church will be used to influence and bless people’s lives this December – for the glory of Christ, not just to say we did something.

Have a great Monday everyone – I am praying for our church!

In Christ,

Pastor Kevin
