Fourth Sunday of Advent--Love All

On this last Sunday of advent the Advent Conspiracy focuses on another way to make Christmas memorable.
It all boils down to love. Love from a savior. Love to a neighbor in need. By spending just a little less on gifts we free up our resources to love as Jesus loves by giving to those who really need help. This is the conspiracy three churches began a few years ago, and has since grown to an international movement where thousands of churches have raised millions of dollars to love others in life-changing ways. But it doesn't have to be about money. And we are able do this on an individual basis.  Love those around us who have less, those who are going through loss, love those who need someone to walk along side of them.

Mark 12:30-31
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
