During the Month of December
(Our Advent Study)
Beginning December 2
Is redemption possible for Ebenezer Scrooge?
Pastor and author Matt Rawle believes so as he discovers the
teachings of Jesus in the words of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol.
Rawle dives deep into the dark, sad, greedy world of Scrooge and
discovers a man in dire need of a second chance.
Along with Scrooge, we meet
the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future
and in the process learn about living with and for others
in a world blessed by Jesus.
Rediscover and reinvigorate your Christian faith this
Advent and Christmas season and
look at this familiar classic through the lens of faith.
