Advent Conspiracy — Week 2: The Conspiracy of Peace — Spend Less

Peace is more than just the end of chaos and disorder. Peace is the restoring of a right relationship (shalom). In our modern age of excess, our constant striving to “have more” has cost us our peace, both with God and with one another. In committing to spend less this Advent season, we allow God to reorder our lives with peace. As we let go of our desire for more stuff, we open our hands to receive greater gifts — a right relationship with God, with one another, with ourselves, and with the world.
