Merry Christmas

A Season Worth Celebrating

Dickens Village
This little ceramic village celebrates the time of Charles Dickens.

Most of us remember the little story 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens. What we forget is that it was written in a time of great social upheaval during the Industrial Revolution. Then, as now, the spectre of want and fear cast shadows on the human condition. Dickens wrote his little story in part to address such things.

Here is a Radio Drama Presentation of A Christmas Carol by Focus on the Family. The presentation begins with some really good historical background.
