Take a look at this creative Advent/Christmas outreach by the Archdiocese of Washington, DC:

Find the Perfect Gift.org

Maggie Guiterrez (a Making Disciples alum) writes in the PCNEA Evangelization e-newsletter:

This Advent we are inviting our parishioners to put a sign of their faith in public, among their neighbors.

The campaign asks to put a yard sign in their homes, like the ones political candidates use during their campaigns. The sign shows the profile of the three Magi following the star to the stable in Bethlehem and the slogan "Find the perfect gift," which is the direction of a new webpage dedicated to exalt Jesus as the perfect gift of God to us. The web page has a video message from Cardinal Wuerl and other reflections to help people find the true meaning of Christmas, including an invitation find the nearest church to celebrate Christmas.

What a great idea.    May the Holy Spirit use it to bring many searching 21st century Magi home.

Are you aware of other creative Advent outreaches around the country or beyond?
