There’s a Scrooge in all of us, in some ways. That part of us that wants everything for ourselves. That part of us that is guarded, jaded, and bitter from past hurts. That cynical part of us that sneers at the childlike wonder of Christmas. This is a story of transformation. We believe in a God who is in the business of transformation, a baby that came to redeem and restore, and a Holy Spirit who is with us always—not just for one visit on Christmas Eve. We truly hope that the voice of God is woven throughout every moment of this story, beckoning to the Scrooge in all of us…gradually calling us to a life of hallelujahs over humbugs.
Crafting Scrooge has been more like making a homemade Christmas present for our community with God as our guide. We can’t wait for our audience to unwrap this gift, and we’re hoping they’ll find a glimpse into the greatest gift of all—Immanuel, God with Us.
It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.
