Thursday we paused as a nation to give thanks - and there is much for many of us to be thankful for this year. Then after the parades, turkey, football and the dog show (which I never understand) the shopping frenzy began (in lots of places it began on Thursday evening and continued into Black Friday and Small Business Saturday)! In recent years today has become known a Cyber Monday. Evidently today we go back to work, log online and buy more stuff (maybe that’s what has you online right now). But Christmas can be so much more than shopping.
Last Christmas we introduced to Mountaintop the idea that Christmas can still change the world and invited you to join us in an Advent Conspiracy to Worship Fully, Spend Less (on things that don’t last), so that you can Give More (to the things that do) and Love All. This Christmas we are hoping we will all continue the conspiracy.
If you are shopping online today, what if you decided (as an act of generosity) to also use money in a way that makes a difference. A gift to Mountaintop or one of our ministry partners (see below) lasts way longer than an iPod, toy or winter coat.
You can make a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation. It's really simple and fast simply click on Give to Mountaintop. And here's my Cyber Monday offer: 100% of your investment will go to reaching people for Jesus and sharing a better way to live.
To the glory of God!
P.S. Did you know that tomorrow is #GivingTuesday which I guess makes today #GivingTuesday Eve. Read more at Giving Tuesday. In addition to a gift to Mountaintop you might remember one of our local ministry partners for kids at risk:
