An "Advent on Film" for Christmas Movie Fans

We just set up a Meet-Up group for Christmas Movie Fans. The idea is to meet new people while watching and discussing Christmas movies together as we anticipate the coming of Christmas.

We will be putting together two different types of regular meetings. Anyone is welcome to come to one or both any time.

The first type will be just pure movie watching. We will pick a location and simply get together and enjoy a Christmas movie with snacks and conversations.

We will also meet every Sunday night for the last 4 weeks prior to Christmas to focus on one or two particular movies as a way to frame and discuss different aspects of the season of anticipation known as "Advent" that leads us to Christmas. These meetings will be part of the Corridor's weekly worship gatherings.

Christmas is ultimately the magical experience of when humanity meets the divine. Our culture often captures the spirit of this in the stories we tell on film. Come enjoy these movies with others, and hopefully we can at least get a taste of community that promotes peace on earth and good will toward everyone.

Some of the movies we will be watching include: Nightmare before Christmas, A Christmas Carol, It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, Elf, A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, A Charlie Brown Christmas and The Little Drummer Boy.
