Join us as we kick off our fall Masterclass series and dive into the question, how do we prove the existence of God? What evidence can we present to convince a world of post-truth, alternative facts, and “fake news”? Hear the case for God – and why it may be more rational to believe that God exists than that He doesn’t.
The history of Halloween and Christianity goes all the way back to the Middle Ages. The roots of trick-or-treating can, for example, be traced back to a medieval Christian tradition, in which the poor would go to wealthy homes on Hallowtide — the eve of All Saints’ Day — and offer prayers in exchange for food and beer. But while Halloween has long involved symbols of death and demons, the origins of questioning whether Christians should celebrate Halloween are fairly recent. Join Jim Wood as we discuss how Halloween fits with Christianity, how it relates to the Gospels, and what the holiday means for us in today’s world.
