The Redemption of Scrooge II:
Hope from Past Heartbreak

Now, Scrooge experiences an A-HA moment, that rather than “Humbug.” As the Ghost has shone light on his past, on who he was and what he used to believe, he opens the way for further reflection and the hope of transformation begins to dawn. We all have a past, too. No decision is too tainted, no shame too great, and no hole too deep for Jesus to find and heal our past. In this season, God now invites us to slow down so that we might notice the change happening within our own hearts. Will we choose to look down by the disappointments of the past, or will we reignite our hope in the future through the love of God? How can we find hope from heartbreak, not only experiencing transformation in our own lives, but living transformation in the world around us?

Our book will be "The Redemption of Scrooge" by Matt Rawle.

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. (description from www.cokesbury.com)

Blue Christmas

Sunday, December 11 at 7:00 pm.

 Does this Christmas season bring feelings of sadness and loneliness to you? In the midst of bright Christmas lights, holiday decorations, glittery gifts, and joyful caroling, you might not feel the happiness that others feel. You might be experiencing loss of a loved one, divorce, unemployment, homelessness, miscarriage, estrangement, loneliness, addiction, illness, or depression. Perhaps you hurt because of the pain and violence in the world around you. If this Christmas brings feelings of hurt, sadness, or loneliness, please attend our Blue Christmas Service presented by UMCW’s Stephen Ministers. This meaningful service will include live music from our Bell Choir and Adult Choir. It will be held in the church sanctuary. Please consider bringing a friend going through a difficult time. This service will offer solace to those struggling or grieving this Christmas season.
