Video : How Did Jesus Celebrate Christmas?

Watch the above video clip on how Jesus celebrated Christmas.

Everyone wants Christmas to be meaningful.

But, instead it becomes, shop, shop, shop, credit cards, traffic jams, todo lists, useless gifts,

then off to church, Noel, noel, noel,

Sometimes we are glad just to survive it

Did you know Americans spend 450 billion on Christmas every year.

So we ask? How did Jesus celebrate?

Jeus gave. He gave himself relationally, incarnation, time, space, presence,

presence…Did you see where this is going?

What if you brought fewer gifts,

that sweater she wont like, that random gift certificate,

that toy he doesn’t need, and then instead of buying that gift,

give something valuable like your TIME.

talk, eat, sled, bake, bike, read…TOGETHER.

Make gifts (like when you were a kid)

and remember that money you didn’t spend for gifts,

what if you gave some of it away?

to the poor, the hurting, the lonely, the hungry, the sick, the thirsty.

Lack of clean water kills more people everyday than anything

And here’s the thing:

The estimated cost to make clean water available to everyone is 10 billion

10 billion solve world water problem, 450 billion spent on christmas

DO YOU SEE WHAT COULD HAPPEN?

In 2006, four churches gave $500,000 to build fresh water wells

In 2007, more churches said Let’s do this thing and 3 million was given.

Thats a lot of love…life all because people $pent

less on gifts and more on relationships

Let’s face it

consumerism != happiness

consumerism != memories

consumerism != meaning

Spend less on gifts

Give more presence

Love like Jesus

It began with worship

It begins with worship

Worship fully

Spend less

Give more

Love All

This is the season of advent

You are free to worship…live…breathe…give…laugh…celebrate…conspire

Video : The Christian Ripple Effect

Watch the inspirational video given above titled The Christian Ripple Effect.

We all know how important it is to talk to others about Christ. But we shouldn’t forget about the impact of how we live our lives as well. Just think, you may never meet the person whose life you helped change.

You can call it the “Ripple Effect” or “Trickle Down Blessings”. It is ultimately Gods’ will that none should perish. He has a plan, and this is a great video to show how sharing Christ, inviting someone to church, pays Eternal dividends! Something to think about the next time someone asks, ‘Why do you wear that cross?’, or ‘What is it about you, you are always happy’? Even though it sometimes seems it is not so, sharing our faith is always a winning situation!

This video makes you realize how sharing Christ with just one person can have a ripple effect and lead so many others to our Lord. Don’t be discouraged if you feel like you sow and never reap! You are sowing what someone else may reap later. No sincere effort is lost!

We have so many opportunities each day to plant seeds in other’s lives in the everyday things we say and do: a smile, a kind word, patience & responding like Christ rather than fleshing out on someone who really deserves it. Can you imagine that day when we stand before the Lord to hear Him say “Well done, Well done indeed!” as He opens our eyes to reveal all those “Nate”s that are in heaven because of us!

From nothing, nothing comes. We must engage, risk, be bold and love unconditionally. Love motivates us to action, open your mouth to share what God has done for you. Don’t wait, this might be your last chance. Live this day as it was your last, knowing that the prize (or treasure) is on the next side of this life.

As christians, sharing Christ to others is an opportunity; a great privilege to honor & glorify God and yet, this is the least that we can do to let the whole world know of Jesus Christ!

Video : Why Do We Believe In God?

Watch the above video on why we believe in God. Fr. Robert Barron answers the most basic question, why do we believe in God? To expand our knowledge about the spiritual life, we must begin with the truth. In this video clip, Fr. Barron looks at how each of us is already ‘wired to God’.

I absolutely love the style of delivery, it is clear, refreshing, and visually stimulating and engaging. The background scenes make the presentation alive. The arguments from desire and contingency are so compelling that they serve as perfect tools for explaining the reason for belief in God.

Robert Barron is a prominent theologian in the catholic church. He is the Francis Cardinal George Chair of Faith and Culture at University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois, and was ordained an Archdiocesan priest in Chicago in 1986.

If we look to God as simply an ingredient among many in a chain of causes and relationships within the mechanism of the universe (e.g. why is it raining, where do babies come from) we have made a category error. Fr. Barron tries to move the conversation about God into a realm where God fits the answer better.

Here are Fr. Barron’s arguments for God in a nutshell:

Argument from desire: You can’t desire what you don’t know. Since we desire something good and just, which we can’t find here (nothing is good enough or just enough), THEREFORE there must be something that has given us the desire for that can fulfill it. That good and just thing is God.

Argument from intelligibility: Science assumes being is intelligible. The world has an underlying logic. There are rules that if follows and we can recognize them. He mentions that the current Pope, Benedict XVI, argues that when we recognize the world we “re-cognize,” we re-think the logic or logos that has formed the systems of this world. That logic is God, who is in nature intelligible.

Argument from Contingency: The world exists but it doesn’t have to exist. Basically put, we can ask why is there something rather than nothing. We don’t have to exist, but we do. To find the cause of the existence of the universe we have to go outside of the universe. That cause is God.
