Keeping Christmas Well | Week 4
When we think about Scrooge, we always think about Bah Humbug Scrooge. But he undergoes a radical transformation during the course of his journey with the three spirits. His life is changed completely, yet we never think of Scrooge as the conquering hero. He’s always the greedy, grumpy old man. This is how we think about ourselves too often as well. We emphasizes areas of brokenness while ignoring areas of victory and redemption. The Christmas story is good news for us all- we have all been redeemed! Move on from your Scroogy past and lean into the redemption we find in the Christmas story. It fundamentally changes our lives and reorients our way of life.
