  • Pray for your pastor.
    When faith is your job, it’s easy to grow weary.
    I get a taste of it every week when I sit down to write this column. First, I have to think of something that’s hopefully both entertaining, worth saying and also something I think God wants me to say.
    Plus, it needs to be biblically accurate and I try to make it as faithful to my particular denominational tradition (in my case Reformed theology) as I can be without totally alienating the Baptists, Catholics, Methodists and/or Pentecostals.

  • For young children, Halloween night is one of the best of the year. But trick-or-treating can be dangerous if kids and parents aren’t careful. Take a look at some vital trick-or-treating tips before you accompany your child.
    • Plan a route in advance.
    Trick-or-treating could take you several streets away from your house, which can cause sore legs and a bit of frustration. Avoid long paths by mapping out a route before leaving the house. Stick to paths that you and your child are familiar with to avoid getting lost.
    • Wear comfy shoes.
