SLW! Podcast Episode #56: Ken Weigel, Director of Advent Conspiracy

Since 2006 Advent Conspiracy has become a global movement of people and churches resisting the cultural Christmas narrative of consumption by choosing a revolutionary Christmas. In this episode, Ken illuminates each of four tenets:

  • Spending Less,
  • Giving More
  • Loving All
  • Worshipping Fully

Because of people who have entered into the conspiracy, millions of dollars have been given to provide clean water solutions around the world.
