greg holder (advent conspiracy) :: 1.25

this week we talk with greg holder, pastor of windsor crossing community church and one of the founders of advent conspiracy — a movement to refocus our advent plans by encouraging faith communities to Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More and Love All.

greg gives us a brief overview of how his church is involved in missional and incarnational living and how it led him and others to begin dreaming of a new kind of advent celebration.

give the show a listen, see what dreams it might bring to your mind and then take a few minutes to share (in the comment section or on our listener line) how you plan on bringing about a new kind of advent celebration in your own life.
