Making Room: Experiences Over Things

“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10


Today’s eco-tip comes from Liz Pruchnicki, Immanuel’s Youth Director. 

This Advent, prioritize experiences over things. Especially in your holiday shopping this year, try to gift experiences instead of stuff. It not only helps the environment, it also reorders our living away from consumption. Here’s an interesting article on the idea:


Here’s a prayer for today: 

God of This Moment
We thank you for this life 
For the abundance of living
The diversity of feeling, the breadth of experience
We thank you for your presence in our moments
Moments of deep pain and fulsome joy 
Center our hearts on those moments
So that we might live fully now
So that we might love fully now
So that you might be fully known
