A Christmas Carol

Whats_in_a_NameWhat’s in a name? A name is more than just something by which we are called; in a sense, it is our reputation. Did you know there are a multitude of names for God? 

Each name unique and powerful; the list is endless. Join us on this exciting adventure through Scripture, where we will learn some amazing verses, talk about how those verses should affect our lives, and discuss some practical ways to make these names “real”.

……

“Bah,” said Scrooge, “Humbug.”
~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

What’s in a name? Ask Scrooge, he could tell you. His name is synonymous with everyone unpleasant during the Christmas season.

You guessed it, our first book recommendation during our ‘What’s In a Name‘ series is A Christmas Carol. While we know there are a multitude of movie versions of this classic tale, don’t cheat. Read the actual story. You won’t regret it.a_christmas_carol

Here is a man whose name meant mud. He was grumpy, unkind, selfish, and uncaring. He carried the weight of disappointment and sorrow, which translated into how he treated others. Then, one fateful night, the Lord saw fit to meet him where he was and change his heart.

Our family owns several publications of A Christmas Carol, mostly because we appreciate the various illustrator’s renditions of the book. The story never disappoints and the moral is clear. No matter which version you read, take time to enjoy this lovely book.

Don’t forget! Join us each Friday during our ‘What’s In a Name’ series as we review favorite Christmas tales which point us towards our Heavenly Father and the true meaning of the season!

“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”
~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
