When Halloween Falls On A Church Night ...

Recommended Posts

We will be at church on Wednesday as is our habit, so to speak, if the lord will.

An American missionary pastor of a Baptist church in France will be holding their thanksgiving meal with their church on Thursday, 1st Nov as it is a holiday in France. (All Saints Day, or the Day of the Dead, when Catholics honour (worship?) their ancestors by putting flowers on their graves. If you were to go to France during the next week, you will see pots of chrysanthemums in large quantities in supermarkets, corner stores, market stalls, etc. for people to buy to put on the graves of their dead. Whereas here in England you may give a gift of Chrysanthemums to somebody you visit, in France you wouldn't, you just don't do it, it is as if you were wishing they were dead.
