Every year Americans spend billions of dollars on material items at Christmas. Is this the way to celebrate the birth of Jesus, who gave up his riches to save the world? In this 4-session DVD, pastors Rick McKinley, Chris Seay, and Greg Holder talk about how to be counter-cultural in a consumer driven world.
They show you how to recapture the beauty of Jesus and restore the "scandal of Christmas" by substituting compassion for consumption. Each session is approximately 15 minutes. Total Running Time: 55 minutes. Session Titles:
- Worship Fully - Because Christmas begins and ends with Jesus!
- Spend Less - And free your resources for things that truly matter.
- Give More - Of your presence: your hands, your words, your time, your heart.
- Love All - The poor, the forgotten, the marginalized, the sick, in ways that make a difference.
Note: The book (SKU: 324522) includes a Small Group DVD Discussion Guide in the back along with book chapters that can be read along with each session. The discussion questions can be answered directly from the DVD without reading the book, but the group will need at least one copy of the book.
