Following her successful Advent courses 'To Live Again' (based on 'It's a Wonderful Life') and 'Someone to Believe In' (based on 'Miracle on 34th Street') , Sheila Jacobs has written a brand new course to be studied by individuals or groups as a companion to the 1951 classic movie A Christmas Carol (titled Scrooge in the UK), starring Alastair Sim.

Using suggested clips from the film alongside Bible-based reflections, prayers and conversation points, Humbug and Happiness considers past, present and future through the expected Messiah, the Jesus of the first Christmas, and his promises for the future, as well as themes of forgiveness, living in the now, and trusting God.

In four weekly study sessions, structured around key scenes from the film, it explores the following themes:

• The Chains of Life – living through difficult times and personal circumstances;
• In the Past – things from the past that hold us back today;
• Living Now – being aware of God's call for us in the present;
• Future … Perfect? – understanding God's plan for our whole life: yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Each session includes timing references for watching scenes from the movie on a DVD, and questions for private reflection or in groups, with activities and suggested prayers.
