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.

I didn’t have the great idea that is Advent Conspiracy. The Imago Dei church of Portland are responsible for that.

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?
