conspire with me this Christmas



What is Christmas really about, anyway? I often wonder what an "outsider looking in" would say after he watched a holiday season in the US. I'm going out on a limb here, but I doubt he would recognize it as the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

I don't have time to get preachy right now, but please watch the video. What could you do differently this year? What do you really need for Christmas? Lots of people around the world do have needs. Lots of those needs equal life or death.

Let me know what you think...

Wow, Rob preached on this two weeks ago! I will show him the video. We are conspiring with you but in a slightly different way.
The majority of our gifts this year are from Heifer international. www.heifer.org and KIVA.com check them out, it's an awesome way to care for people all over the world.
