It’s not easy to believe
It’s often the faith of a child that leads the way for life-hardened adults to once again embrace hope and believe for a miracle. While Charlie can’t talk, his cheerfulness and positive outlook speak of a big enough hope to encourage everyone around him.
It is faith and hope that are central to this tale, taken from The Christmas Candle, a story written by Max Lucado several years ago as a parable to encourage those struggling with doubt. Now it’s been made into a film starring Hans Matheson, Samantha Barks and the incredible Susan Boyle. The Christmas Candle is a movie that retells the story of the holy and the human colliding, as they did that first Christmas 2,000 years ago, reminding us of God’s great love despite our cynicism and lack of faith.
