"God really is the God of heart"

I want to share a very moving thing I witnessed this morning in a children’s Sunday School class.  But first I hope you’ll bear with me as I provide a little background on the child who is central to this story.

November 1, 2011 – Why I don’t celebrate Halloween

Posted on November 1, 2011 at 8:35am 2 Comments

I’ve been asked what my daughter is going to be for her first Halloween.  “A baby,” I might reply.  Someone else asked if she was going to wear a costume.  “She’ll wear a diaper…that’s a more elaborate costume than most people will wear.”  I try to get people to smile and chuckle with these tongue-in-cheek replies rather than go into a long, drawn-out discussion of why I detest Halloween.  I could very easily (and probably should) present my grounds on the cultural and religious aspects of…
