Halloween and the beloved ritual of “trick-or-treat” is getting more and more popular each year, worldwide. With dozens (if not hundreds!) of your neighbors lining up for candy and a warm smile… is your door open for Mission this year?
This week 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’re 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 neighborhood.
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.
- 7 ideas on ways to be more intentional and missional this year.
From this episode:
“We had a blast and took things further towards lasting relationships with several people. Our goal with this was to try and move relationships beyond just dropping a good candy bar in the bags of the kids… and start to develop connections and relationships with the parents beyond just this one night of Halloween.”
