“A Christmas Carol”

“It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”
Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens gave us the wonderful story of “A Christmas Carol” which is still popular today and almost everyone has seen or heard this story in one form or another, as the concept has been adapted by many authors.
Charles Dickens was a self educated man who had very little formal education because his father was in debtors prison and Charles was forced to work to provide for the family.
This situation made him determined to better himself and he became an editor, author and openly wrote about the injustices of that era.
He was a professed Christian although he spoke against hypocrisy in organized religion.
He loved Christmas and gave us a wonderful story of the change of heart from cruelty to the reward of giving to others.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
