In the article titled “Spirit of this season: Be thankful, give more,” USA TODAY reports on the growing frugality and increasing gratitude of U-S consumers:
“People will figure out a way to have a nice holiday with less,” predicts Karal Ann Marling, author of Merry Christmas! Celebrating America’s Greatest Holiday, a history of the holiday’s evolution. “It’s not so much a new austerity as a realization that we’ve been going overboard for a long time.”
Would your church worship team would like to celebrate by helping a poor family overseas by simply presenting a song this holiday season?
