Christmas at the Movies
The Christmas season always seems to be full of familiar stories—from the family anecdotes that get told any chance we get, to the classic movies we re-watch year after year, to the well-known stories of Scripture repeated each Advent season. These well-rehearsed stories have a way of bringing us together as we wait in anticipation for Christmas. As diverse and varied as these stories may be, they all have certain themes that run through them reminding us what truly matters during this season. This year during December we will make connections between the movies we all love to watch and the familiar Christmas story found in Scripture.
