We have had a number of conversations and diverse perspectives shared on the significance of Halloween. (I wonder if this is primarily an American tradition?).
Some have shared that they approach it as a casual day for dressing up in fun costumes, getting some treats, and spending time with neighbors. Others have voiced a concern that this is a day of celebrating darkness and being influenced by demons.
Either way, there are certainly opportunities for engaging in conversations with people who need Jesus this week!
Two questions for you:
- What is a great, open-ended question that you could ask people in your neighborhood this week?
- What are you praying for God to do as you meet people during Halloween-related activities?
Finally, please make a note to report back later this week and encourage the rest of the Connect community with stories of great, respectful conversations about spiritual issues.
I hope to borrow some of your prayers and questions as I prepare for our neighborhood’s gathering this Wednesday!
