Just a few days ago kids from all over the world celebrated Halloween. Our church even entered a float into Alton’s Halloween parade. I commissioned the float, helped construct it, then walked with it in the parade. Our church even had a Trunk or Treat on the Sunday evening prior to Halloween.
My post today is for those who believe that Halloween is Satan’s Holliday and as such, the church should boycott anything and everything about this day. Now while I am in complete agreement with us refusing the things that have a clear connection with the evil aspects of this day, I refuse to accept that there is a day or a place that the church cannot go.
I believe that October 31 was a day created for God to be praised long before Halloween came to be. If Satan or the world stole it, then let’s take it back! We can’t do that at home with the blinds drawn, sitting in a back room with the lights out! Just a thought.
