MBF encourages new approach to Christmas
MB Foundation believes that Christmas can still change the world and has partnered with Advent Conspiracy to encourage churches & families to celebrate Christmas by spending less, giving more, worshiping fully and loving all this season.
Jon C. Wiebe, president and CEO of MB Foundation, says, “We want to encourage our conference of churches to consider a new perspective this Christmas. We want to encourage folks to give gifts that really will change the world – like quality time, helping those less fortunate, proclaiming the gospel and looking for ways to be more loving. It’s not just about saving money; it’s about remembering that when we give presence instead of presents, we can reclaim the true meaning of Christmas.”
The Advent Conspiracy is a grassroots movement with more than 1,000 churches in 17 countries participating as co-conspirators—with projects as varied as drilling a water well for those who lack access to clean water or simply encouraging congregations to think of meaningful acts of kindness as meaningful gift options to replace traditional gifts.
MB Foundation is also partnering with MBMS International who will identify specific projects for those individuals or churches who join Advent Conspiracy and wish to make a gift of eternal consequence. MB Foundation is encouraging families and churches to give meaning to money this Christmas by bringing back the true nature of Christmas.
