I have been asked by a few what is Advent Shenanigans. Here is my best definition.
Advent Shenanigans = doing things to bring the light of Christ into the world in ways that you would not normally do.
i.e working with the local schools to make sure kids have jackets to stay warm, each jacket will be blessed on the Sunday before and send out that Monday to schools we have worked with.
i.e. doing a christmas eve service in a homeless shelter
i.e. helping out another UMC church who is in need of coats for their coat pantry.
