Humbug and Happiness is an original Advent course based on the classic Christmas movie A Christmas Carol (released as Scrooge in the UK) starring Alastair Sim. 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.

Sheila Jacobs is a Christian writer and editor. An award-winning author of eleven novels, she has also written the Advent courses Someone to Believe In (based on Miracle on 34th Street) and To Live Again (based on It’s a Wonderful Life).
