PORTLAND, Ore. -- It's obvious that giving our neighbor a lame candle out of obligation for Christmas won't change the world. But, when we spend less, give more, worship fully and love all -- Christmas can still change the world. The Advent Conspiracy ( www.AdventConspiracy.org ) started as a loose network of churches determined to celebrate Christmas through relational giving -- either through service to those in need, quality time or charitable causes like contributing to drilling a well in order to provide clean drinking water.

As you can guess, we are having the leftover corned beef for sandwiches at my house. Preparations are under way for the annual visit by the Easter Bunny ... complete with carrot cake and ham. Please don't get so swept up in the commercial end of the holiday that we forget the true reason for Easter.

Artist, author and creativity expert Julia Cameron, in her best-selling book, "The Artist's Way," recommends that people engaged in any kind of creative work give themselves weekly "artist's dates. " The idea is that in doing any kind of art, we draw on an internal well of creativity that needs to be replenished. All that's required is an hour or two at an art exhibit, or listening to music, journaling, or, for that matter, making little figures out of Playdough, just so we carve out some quality time with our inner artist.
