An Advent Conspiracy – Mending the World
As this is the season for traditions, here is a reposting from last December:
There is a Hebrew phrase, Tikkun Olam, which means mending or perfecting the world. For many of the Jewish faith, Tikkun Olam has come to connote social action and the pursuit of social justice.
Yesterday was the final Advent Sunday, a time of expectation and hope. Advent anticipates Christmas, a world-changing event for Christians. Advent Conspiracy is a campaign that asks “What if Christmas became a world-changing event again?”.
We and this blue planet we inhabit are in need of a conspiracy of people of all faiths to pursue Tikkun Olam. Check out this video that challenges the way Christmas is now celebrated, and offers a different way, a way of mending the world. Click here to learn more.
