This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.

Matthew 10 19-20

And don't you worry about what you'll say or how you'll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words. - Matthew 10 19-20

Advent Challenge Day 2

This challenge is now complete, please feel free to browse all of the 
completed tasks via the Advent Challenge tab.

So yesterday I began the Advent Challenge that I have set myself and my friend Sarah of Gingers Soap Box selected number 12. Donate your Christmas card money to charity. The charity that I ended up donating the money to was a charity that my friend Hannah mentioned to me. The charity is one that she has raised money for in the past in is passionate about supporting. Because of this passion and support for it I decided to give the money I was donating to Watershed. This is a charity organisation run by The Salvation Army to provide clean water for families in third world countries who are in danger of falling ill due to the water they have to drink. Please check out the web site and read about the work that is being done and how donations could help them do more work.

After talking about the charity I asked Hannah if she would choose the task for today, she chose the number 9 which is the task, Read Micah 5:2-4. Check back tomorrow to catch up on the challenge and find out which challenge is going to be done on day 3. Don't forget if you feel like joining in with one or all of the tasks you are more than welcome to do so. Also if you want to help by selecting the task to do tomorrow comment below with your choice. Until then Merry Christmas to you all.
