Halloween is a day of great fun and frivolity, but it is also a day of some conflict for Christians. Do we “celebrate” Halloween, or is this a pagan holiday that Christians should avoid? And strangely in the same vein, what does it mean to “celebrate” the reformation? Is this Lutheran Pride Sunday, or is something else at work? Todd and Scott discuss these and more in episode 41 o The Crux of the Matter.
TEACHING THIS WEEK
- Sanctification and the Church of the Nazarene.
