It's time to start thinking about the Advent Conspiracy once again! This is a global attempt to save Christmas from commercialism. To worship fully, spend less, give more, love all.
One way I've enjoyed the Conspiracy the last few years is buy participating in the Imago Dei DIY Craft Fair. This is unlike any holiday craft fair you've ever been to. There are no finished products for you to buy. Instead, there are ordinary people sharing their extra-ordinary talents and teaching the rest of us how to make something for (or with) someone we love. If you click on the Advent Conspiracy tag on the right you'll be able to see photos and posts from Advent Conspiracy projects over the last couple of years.
If you're in Portland, Oregon, next weekend, please come down to the DIY Craft Fair.
When: Saturday November 20, between 10am-2pm
Where: Imago Dei Community : 1302 SE Ankeny, Portland, OR 97214
I'm planning on hosting a "booth" so if you come, please please say hi.
