Light In Dark

Our family is not big on Halloween. We have never understood how fear could be made fun and the darkness of death glorified. Perhaps our experiences of the reality of fear and of death have come close enough for us to realize how not fun they are. Or […]

A Harvest Party!?

I have never understood Halloween; from either a secular point of view or a religious one. I wrote yesterday about the secular part, but really do not understand why Halloween has become accepted by many in the Christian community as well. I am not saying everyone in the […]
