Pastor's Newsletter Article - Oct 2013
We close out the month of September with the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. What a great opportunity for us to be reminded of our Doctrine of Angels, that they are ministering spirits sent by God to serve us, who are to inherit salvation. (Heb 1:14)
That brings us then to the month of October. And on the last Sunday of October we’ll be feasting again as we celebrate the Reformation, the restoration of the Gospel to the church, the good news that through the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we’ve got the forgiveness of sins, and life, and salvation.
There’s another day that’s celebrated at the end of October too, called Halloween. For many, this day is dark and full of evil. There’s the notion that we should avoid all references to this evil day and night. What should we as Christians do with Halloween?
