The Advent Conspiracy challenges us to worship fully, spend less, give more and love all. Could it be more simple?
The idea is to reduce consumerism and change the world. Watching the video clip (below), I learned that Americans spend $450 BILLION each year for Christmas.
Elsewhere in the world, 1.8 million people die every year from water-borne illnesses. This includes 3900 children every single day. In fact, the lack of clean drinking water kills more people every year than anything else.
The world's water problem could be solved--once and for all--with just $10 billion. A small fraction of what we in America spent on Christmas last year.
I'm convicted and I'm challenged. I want to change the world. My heart hurts to change the world.
