THE REDEMPTION OF SCROOGE
Charles Dicken's classic novel, A Christmas Carol, is a story of brokenness and redemption. Scripture says that all things were made through Christ (John 1:3), and through Christ all things were reconciled to God (Colossians 1:20). In other words, everything and everyone in our world contains a spark of the divine--everything is sacred, and whether or not we choose to live in that truth depends on our perspective.
Through Jesus, God put on flesh and walked among us, in our world, in order to re-narrate what it means to be a child of God. God assumed culture and transformed it. So now all is sacred, and in everything we are to see and proclaim God’s glory. We truly believe we are called not to reject the culture we live in, but to re-narrate its meaning—to tell God’s story in the midst of it.
Join us each Sunday through Christmas as we explore what role God plays in our culture--in our day-to-day lives and in the work of our hands.
Where together we discover God's love for all of us
