Just the mention of the word “Halloween” can polarize a room full of Christians. There is no shortage of opinions about it. Some participate, others host or attend Fall Festivals as an alternative, and still others avoid it all-together.

I understand the concerns many have about the holiday and believe that Christians should seek the Lord and follow their conscience as to if and how they participate.

However, our mission is to share the gospel every day of the year, including October 31. Regardless of your convictions, God is not asking you to retreat into a shell or the fortress of your home that day. We are called to be the light of the world every day of the year.
