Christmas Carol - Discussion of a Classic Christmas Movie with Gary Glenn
Tuesday, December 11th, from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
It is coming to the time of year when we will once again enjoy the story of hard-hearted and mean-spirited old Scrooge being transformed by the intervention of the spirits. On Tuesday, December 11, you are invited to join us at First Congregational United Church of Christ to view the Alastair Sim version of this Charles Dickens Christmas classic. Afterward Gary Glenn will lead a conversation which seeks to deepen our understanding of this perennial favorite. He will raise such questions as: Was Scrooge an altogether bad fellow before the Spirits visit? (Hint: Gary thinks he had some significant virtues). Why did Scrooge believe the spirits when, only the night before, he had dismissed Marley’s ghostly face as a bit of undigested beef? Why did the spirits’ education succeed in softening Scrooge s avarice-hardened heart when others who cared about him (his youthful fiancée, and his employer old Fezziwig) tried and failed?
We hope that our discussion will inspire you to enjoy this story every year, not merely as heart-warming (thought it is wonderfully that), but as an example of how God s grace can make our daily treatment of those near to us instruments of their and our redemption.
