Turn Halloween into Something Positive in Your Family and Neighborhood

Many Christians are under the mistaken belief that Halloween, or more specifically All Saint's Day, was established for the purpose of Christianizing a pagan holiday called Samhain.

But Halloween actually started as a Christian festival, not the other way around.

Many Christians dread the coming of Halloween, trying to shield their children from every part of it, and wishing it would go away. And that s a shame, because Halloween is distinctly Christian in origin, and there are many ways that Christians can re-claim Halloween as a Christian celebration.

I have advocated through the years that we recapture Halloween as a part of the Christian calendar, a sort of Christian Memorial Day, and honor Christians who have been a part of our heritage.
Rich Buhler, broadcaster, speaker, author and founder of TruthOrFiction.com

How To Recapture Halloween as a Christian Holiday

• Know the original purpose of All Hallow's Eve : Early Christians wanted to honor those who gave their lives for the Gospel
• Discover that Samhain was never associated with a festival of the dead until 1890.
• Use the 3 ways for using Halloween to give positive message to our family and neighborhood.

What s the first step?

• Know your history. You could read a long book on church history, that hopefully has a section on pagan religions.

OR

• You can have a quick explanation of the key facts by reading a short 14-page pamphlet.

I love this pamphlet! I am especially glad it gives the true history, rather than suggesting Halloween was merely a Christian attempt to redeem pagan holidays.

About the Author

Angie Mosteller is the director of Celebrating Holidays, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to teaching the Christian history of holidays.

Holidays afford a unique opportunity to understand significant aspects of the Christian faith, ... My goal is to help Christians who are seeking to better understand the history of Americans holidays and to offer useful resources for those who want to make their celebration more meaningful and creative. Author Angie Mosteller

What other people are saying...

"It is a delight to see how Angie Mosteller interprets and thoroughly explains, the celebration of many holidays, through research and a heart ransomed by Christ! Her firm understanding of Jesus' love and sacrifice, beautifully enhances the Truth of God's heart of celebration, among His people. Angie is a talented, Spirit-filled woman, wife, mother and friend who chooses to bless all in her path!"
Paula Webb, Women's Ministry Director, Daybreak Church, Carlsbad, CA

"The first time I read one of Angie's books on American holidays I was amazed at how thorough and readable it was. I'm not an academic, she is, but she crafts each book into an exciting historical story covering our Nations's traditions, symbols, and songs from a Christian worldview. It's fun to read and so easy to incorporate into teachable moments with my children during the holidays. I'm always sharing her books and website with friends during the holidays."
Wendy Brunner, Mom Blogger at "Love Covers a Multitude of Sons"

God's Care for the Brokenhearted

Put this in the hands of a grieving friend to ease the journey through stages of grief. Words of comfort and biblical examples of grief for losses of many kinds help to give perspective, meaning, and hope to the devastation of loss through death, divorce, and the ending of significant relationships.

Loss is inevitable. But hope is available.

Everyone goes through loss, but the pain of losing a loved one is especially difficult. It seems that the sadness will go on forever. Every moment is consumed with the overwhelming grief that the loss is final. The agony makes us wonder if the tears will ever stop. Our hearts break with despair. We desperately want some sense of comfort. We need compassion and understanding. We long for a time of renewed hope and a reason for living.

And the Scripture gives us this message of comfort:
God sees your broken heart. He hears your cries. He cares for you and has a message you need to hear.

These are the Bible stories and passages I hung onto when my marriage ended in divorce. I had to remind myself over and over of God s care and faithfulness, even when I was in despair. I m glad I listened to God rather than to my fears. The words and promises in this pamphlet pulled me through. Single Mother, So. California

Commentary on Textual Additions to the New Testament

Sale 20% off
The Greek edition of the New Testament known as the Textus Receptus, from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, has thousands more words than earlier manuscripts of the second through fourth centuries. Major English translations based on the Textus Receptus, such as Tyndale's New Testament and the King James Version, have all these extra verses, phrases, and words.

This book clearly presents these additions to English readers and then explains why they were added. Scribes often made insertions based on their knowledge of the other gospels, other passages of Scripture, Christian theology, and oral traditions. By understanding the sources and probable reasons for the insertions, students and teachers of the Bible can make informed translation and interpretive decisions.

Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth release from the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Releasing in 2011, it joins previous best sellers like "Fireproof" and "Facing the Giants" to touch hearts and impact lives through heartfelt stories of faith and hope. Churches used "Fireproof" to change marriages; COURAGEOUS provides the opportunity to strengthen families and fathers.
The story of four law officers who discover leading a family takes even more bravery than fighting crime, COURAGEOUS captures the heart of the father, calling him to Christ as he seeks to be a better dad. As churches and individuals have done with other Sherwood pictures, this movie provides a great opportunity to reach out socially and spiritually to friends, neighbors, and co-workers by inviting them to attend a COURAGEOUS screening, a related Sunday morning sermon, men's ministry event, or small-group Bible study.
Toward that goal, the "Courageous Campaign Kit" comes complete with a step-by-step planning guide, supportive sermon outlines, a 4-week small-group study (with member book and supporting film clip DVD), evangelism outreach materials, a DVD-ROM with promotional trailers and worship helps, an advance copy of Sherwood pastor Michael Catt's "Courageous Living" book, plus branded products featuring official COURAGEOUS art to create an exciting campaign suitable for your church or ministry needs.
