One of the great benefits of working for a wee small church is that if you have a good idea, you can get it implemented (reasonably) fast.
But the idea is so sweet and so subversive that it fills me with child-like glee when I consider the lives that a small community like MCC can transform when it discovers this way to say no to the mythic god of consumerism.
Of course, you need neither be a member of MCC, nor even a Christian, to recognise that our Christmases need to change; for our sake and the sake of the world. So why not consider it?
