Congregation

Presence or Presents?

Saturday, October 29, 2016 | 10:00am

Which will you choose? Christmas presence or Christmas presents? The Environmental Advocacy Group hosts a morning discussion of One Hundred Dollar Holiday: The Case for a More Joyful Christmas by the notable environmentalist Bill McKibben. The book provides the history of the celebration of the birth of our Lord and explains how Christmas came to be dominated by merchants cleverly equating presents with love. Read this short 96-page book ahead of time and come share your ideas to make your Christmas less stressful and more meaningful. Your family will thank you!

“Christmas is too wonderful a celebration to give up on, too precious a time simply to repeat the same empty gestures from year to year. This book will serve as a road map to a Christmas far more joyful than the ones you’ve known in the past.”—Bill McKibben.
