I remember when I was little, I used to hate going to bed. I hated going to bed, because I was afraid of the dark. My two older brothers knew that I was afraid of the dark, and used to terrorize me at night by making sounds or by telling ghost stories that were sure to keep me up all night hearing sounds or seeing things even after they had gone to bed.
During the month of October, we will be doing a sermon series called: Ghost Stories.
Halloween is one of the most popular holidays in the United States; it is hard to escape its influence on our culture. Rather than avoid Halloween, during this season we remember that Christ is the light in the darkness, and God tells us: do not be afraid.
