Advent: A Christmas Carol

This Advent Season we are going to explore the world of Charles Dickens novel, "A Christmas Carol." Perhaps you’ve read the book or watched one of the many movies that have been produced, from Bill Murray’s “Scrooged," to the "Muppet Christmas Carol." Charles Dickens was a man who firmly believed that those who claimed to follow Jesus should take seriously the call to love God and neighbor, and much of his work was an attempt to point out the hypocrisy and cruelty of his own contemporary society and church. The story of Scrooge’s transformation from “...squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner,” to a man who promised, "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year…” has a lot to teach us during this time of Advent. Let’s listen to the story Dickens tells and discover how it points to the greatest story ever told, when “...the time came for the baby to be born…” --Luke 2:6

Scripture References: Luke 2:6
