This funny, moving, exhilarating show has captivated audiences across the country. A great outreach event. A great time of enjoying a fresh perspective on Christmas. Rediscovering Christmas opens with a comedic tale of two blue collar shepherds who are in the right place at the right time on Christmas eve.
From there follows a series of vignettes including a powerful moving rendition of the Annunciation, a tender funny story about ice fishing, a hilarious look at dealing with in-laws at Christmas, and a true story of an Appalachian single mom in need of a Christmas miracle. The evening climaxes with a finale about an irrepressible Jamaican wiseman who retells the Christmas story like you've never heard it before.
Rediscovering Christmas is great for encouraging your church , as well as a means of outreach into the community. It's easy to invite friends and neighbors to an evening of laughter, great theatre and joy. We offer suggestions for what has worked for other churches across the country to make this a successful and effective ministry event.
"Acts of Renewal, brought refreshment and encouragement to our church in December. Our congregation had been through some significant transitions and the concert allowed us to laugh and cry together. My personal favorite was Carol's portrayal of an Appalachian single mom, the story of the woman's great need and God's great help to her was so realistic and so moving. Jim's rendition of the Lost Wiseman with the Jamaican accent was like the last big fireworks display on July 4. The enthusiasm and passion of that presentation capped off the whole evening in style."

"We loved the Christmas show! Jim and Carol use their creative talents to communicate the practical implications of the Christian walk. We cried as we laughed at seeing ourselves in family Christmas dilemmas. Their piece on the Jamaican Wiiseman brought the reason to celebrate alive for our singles group. Our folks are begging to have them back...for the third time!"
