It starts with Jesus. It ends with Jesus. This is the holistic approach God had in mind for Christmas. It’s a season where we are called to put down our burdens and lift a song up to our God. It’s a season where love wins, peace reigns, and a king is celebrated with each breath. It’s the party of the year. Entering the story of advent means entering this season with an overwhelming passion to worship Jesus to the fullest.
Advent Conspiracy Connections
The message of Advent Conspiracy is intertwined with the core message of the Advent season: it's about us reclaiming the story of Advent and Christmas. The gospel reading tells us we need to be watchful and alert, but it's hard to intently focus on two things. At this time of year, many of us are watching for sales, gifts to purchase, busy schedules, and more. Worshipping fully means putting our focus onto God.
