Chickpastor’s Advent Calendar, Day 11

This is the second year my church has participated in the Advent Conspiracy. I’m very proud to say that Holy Trinity raised about $5000 last year for clean water wells through Lutheran World Relief (part of our giving it away initiative). This year, we’ll be giving whatever amount is given to Ano del Banyo, a project with the Lutheran Church in Guatemala that educates and supplies rural communities with a dry latrine. I LOVE that our non-denominational brothers and sisters have “discovered” Advent, and I love what they’re teaching us about appreciating this season. Even if you’re not a church person, there’s a sentiment here that can apply to the frenzy that goes on, and this video does about the best job of capturing what we can change the spirit to instead.
