The Heart That Grew Three Sizes DVD
Finding Faith in the Story of the Grinch
Rediscover the gift of Advent that comes without packages, ribbons, and bows.
We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. In this new Advent study, Matt Rawle explores the faith themes in the Christmas classic,
How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
including, how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives? This Advent and Christmas season, look at a familiar classic through the lens of faith and see how Christ speaks to us through our culture.
The DVD contains four video segments of 8-10 minutes each, to go with the four book chapters. For use during the group sessions, these videos feature Matt Rawle teaching in his friendly, casual, appealing style. All video sessions are closed captioned.
Session 1: When Everything Is Wrong,
Matt Rawle discusses the way hate distorts our vision, the importance of remembering the Christmas story well, and the peace that Christ brings us.
Session 2: When Christmas Isn’t Christmas
Matt Rawle invites us to consider the ways we celebrate Christmas and the extent to which they point us to Christ. Or perhaps these traditions have come to exist for their own sake, and we need to rediscover the heart of the Christmas story.
Session 3: When Light Shines
Matt Rawle explores the role of light and darkness, and how so much of our Christmas celebrations involve light. When light shines, it reveals our need for spiritual growth and understanding.
Session 4: When Joy Is Our Song
Matt Rawle explores the Whos’ singing, which transformed even the Grinch’s heart. Music is bound up with the joy we find at Christmas. And in the end, the Whos and the Grinch feasting together points to the Christian hope of forgiveness and reconciliation.
