Several years ago I led the Advent study based on the book, The Redemption of Scrooge, by Matt Rawle. It was well received by a small group of adults so I am using it again this year with another adult small group and adding podcasts each week of Advent. Through listening to the podcasts, others can join in this study by hearing the sermon series I have edited for use as podcasts.
Redemption is the Eternal One’s work, and this study, based on the novel by Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol is excellent for preparing to welcome the Messiah again into our lives–the salvation of the world–God with us. My favorite movie version of Scrooge is the one with George C. Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge. Before listening to the first week of the Advent podcast, click here, “Scrooge at His Worst”, to view a clip from my favorite movie version.
Here are the links to the podcasts:

Next week I will post the podcast for Advent Week 3. I hope you will follow this blog so that you can get the notification when I post the next session.
If you would like to read Matt Rawle’s book,The Redemption of Scrooge, go to your favorite online bookstore and order a copy. It is worth reading as it is full of excellent content that cannot be covered in 15 to 20 minute sermon or even weekly one-hour small group sessions. Here’s the book cover image:
