Advent blog: Happiness, as easy buying a can of coke by Andrew Harris

This month in HYG we had an interesting discussion that I thought I’d share. In the spirit of the Christmas season, we watched a bunch of commercials and, specifically, we looked at what the commercials were selling. We watched a Coke commercial where Coke made everyone in the world happy, a gum commercial where the gum plays an integral role in a couple falling in love, and a JetBlue commercial that promised luxury, comfort, and security. These commercials lead us to believe that happiness, love,...

Advent Blog: “Be Ready for Advent” by Andrew Harris

The following is an excerpt of a blog post written recently by David Capener, a church leader and blogger from Belfast, Ireland.

And there must be more people out there who, like me, don’t yet know that they need to hear this message; people whose lives...
Advent Devotional: The person who has everything.

Advent Devotional: The person who has everything.

December 11, 2014 by: Andrew Harris What do you get for the person who has everything? Boy, has that phrase become overwrought and meaningless. We use it now as a catch-all term for, “I don’t know what to get this person.” I’m almost ashamed to admit that I found myself thinking this about a person in my life. I snapped myself out of it and realized that this person doesn’t have everything, but what they have is enough. They have all they could want and...
