Christmas II – Christ at the Movies

December 27, 2015
Passage: Revelation 21:1-6

Christmas is all about transformation from “everyday” to extraordinary. We add ornaments to a tree, decorations to a home, and fruit to a cake. We even celebrate a baby laid in a manger. As the Christmas season nears its end, wonder about how the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

Getting Started:

  • What comes to mind when you hear the word "new"?


  • Revelation 21:1-6 is about the new.
  • What pictures are used to describe the "new"?
  • Looking at verse 3, what is the source of all this newness?


  • “A Christmas Carol”, whichever version you choose.
  • Scrooge’s journey is one of renewal. How does this happen?

Experience it:

  • Plant a seed.
  • What supplies will you need?
  • What will have to happen to the seed?
  • What will the results look like?

What difference does it make?

  • Think of a situation in your life, or in the world, where renewal is needed.
  • What would it look like to bring renewal there?
