The past few Christmases I’ve noticed the beginnings of a shift away from shopping-shopping-shopping and toward giving-giving-giving. Have you noticed it, too? Christmastime is increasingly becoming a time for generosity and care for the poor, especially the poor in other countries. How awesome.
I love the way Christmas seems to bring out awareness of the poor. But soon it will be January again.
What if the stuff that happens at Christmastime…happens all the time?
