Advent study—The Redemption of Scrooge

Sunday, December 22 from 2–4 pm in the Parish Center

Self-absorbed and grouchy—that’s how we may picture Scrooge. Pushing past homeless people who beg for money, he doesn’t pause to look them in the eye. He can’t be bothered by other people’s troubles. How could he be so uncaring? Do we recognize something of ourselves in him? This Advent study invites us to enter into the pathos of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol to discover anew the healing power of God’s grace. Even the most selfish, sinful person is not beyond the reach of God’s love in Jesus Christ. As we spiritually consider our past, present, and future, may we, like Ebenezer Scrooge, recommit ourselves to kindness, living with a generous spirit in today’s world of haves and have-nots. Rediscover and reinvigorate your faith this Advent and Christmas season and look at this familiar classic through the lens of faith.
