Happy October!!

One of my favorite Christian Holidays is back again – Halloween!

Check out my post from last year to get the full story…

This year I want to encourage you to take some time with your kids to talk about the roots of this holiday.  Perhaps in the evening while getting dressed up or on the excited ride home from school.  This will also help our young people understand and process all the scary ghosts and zombies that folks have around their homes.

As with every holiday in the church, All-Saint’s Eve (All Hallows Eve – Halloween) is about Jesus.  With Him by our sides and in our hearts we have nothing to fear.  Halloween should always be a celebration of this!

I also want to invite you to chapel next week, October 29th, where I will be talking to the students about Halloween.  Even if you cannot make it, be sure to ask your students Wednesday evening about chapel and see how the conversation goes.

Blessings to you and your family!  And as always, don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions!
