Marketplace Institute to Take a “Cyber-Sabbath” Over the Christmas Season

December 20, 2012

The Marketplace Institute will be taking a hiatus from activity on our various online networks and outlets from Saturday, December 22 until Tuesday, January 1. We hope that the Christmas and New Year season is a time spent being wholly present in the physical spaces you find yourself celebrating Christ’s birth.

Despite the way the world of marketing and media attempts to take advantage of our attention during the Christmas season, we also recognize that this is a unique time when the world’s pattern of vacation correlates with the Christian celebration of our Saviour’s birth. This hiatus from our regular schedules can potentially provide space for us to focus on time spent with family and friends. We support this hiatus and want our activities to reflect that support. We are therefore closing our doors physically and on the Internet by pausing any updates on our website and social media until the new year. We hope this season around the arrival of our Lord and Saviour is one you can enter into with the Peace, Joy, Hope, and Love of Christ.

Merry Christmas from the Marketplace Institute!
