135: The Best Ways to Be Missional This Halloween
Halloween… that time of year when kids all go nuts, eat too much candy, and then crash after their sugar buzz wears off. But there’s more to it than all that.
Today on the Lifeschool podcast, we talk about what may be the lowest hanging fruit of the year when it comes to relationship building and intentional missional engagement with your neighbors.
Halloween has some “dark history,” and many of us were taught that this was a holiday you were supposed to avoid if you are a Christian. But the truth behind this annual event may surprise you. There’s no reason to miss out on this HUGE chance to bring redemption to your ‘hood.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- The history of Halloween and how the church may have actually invented it.
- How the Gospel redeems culture instead of avoiding it.
- Why Christians can and should participate with radical generosity.
- How to move beyond the costumes and “trick-or-treat” with your neighbors
- How discipleship and mission will be showing up at your doorstep this Halloween.
- 7 ideas on ways to be more intentional and missional this year.
Regardless if you really love this tradition and go all out, or if you’re less into the whole dress-up and party thing, and whether you call it Halloween, trick-or-treat, Harvest Party or whatever, you can leave a lasting impression on people and really prime the pump for future missional opportunities.
What “divine appointments” may show up on the other side of your front door?
