Materials: The Heart That Grew Three Sizes: Finding Faith in the Story of
the Grinch Booklet by Matt Rawle

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, author
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.
