The story of Christ's birth is a story of promise, hope, and a revolutionary love.
So, what happened? What was once a time to celebrate the birth of a savior has somehow turned into a season of stress, traffic jams, and shopping lists.
And when it's all over, many of us are left with presents to return, looming debt that will take months to pay off, and this empty feeling of missed purpose. Is this what we really want out of Christmas?
What if Christmas became a world-changing event again?

Trade As One offers some light for Black Friday
Hey, we love giving gifts (and receiving them isn’t too bad either). This year, why not give something with a story behind it? Instead of standing in long lines this Friday, do some shopping over at Trade As One. Gang, this stuff is very cool. I’m personally a big fan of these recycled magazine bowls. Best of all, every is handmade by someone in a developing country who is trying to get themselves and their family out of poverty and dependency. Nathan George, our friend and founder of Trade As One has a few words for us as we enter into this busy shopping season. Head over to our blog and read up now.
Are you a pastor? Then this one’s for you…
