THE SPIRIT OF HALLOWEEN
BY JOHANNA MICHAELSEN
Last Halloween when the doorbell rang, I was greeted by an adorable bunch of little kids doing their level best to look like gruesome witches and vampires. I bent down as I distributed apples and oranges in response to lusty cries of “trick or treat!”
“You kids want to know something?” I asked very softly.
I never look forward to Mondays, or Sunday nights for that matter. Not because it’s the start of the new week. Or for the fact that Michelle and the girls will be at work and school during the day, leaving me at home alone.
But because late Sunday night I go through withdrawals, as I come off the narcotic drug which I have needed to be on for the weekend or sometimes just for Sunday. A drug, just so that I can bear the increased pain of sitting, standing and walking as a result of going to church, the wanting to be social and trying to have a ‘normal’ life/weekend like everyone else.
Christopher Wayne – Magician
It saddens me today as I read and listened to Christopher Wayne’s reasoning as to why he no longer believes in God. Though he still says that there must be a ‘god or ‘intelligent being’. But says that God, our God who created the heavens and the earth, cannot be a loving God if He allows there to be pain and suffering in this world. (You can listen to an interview that he did with Katrina Davidson on 612ABC radio here.)
