A few Halloween suggestions

The notices have appeared again outside the Shire.

“Trick-or-Treat in Morningside Gardens will take place on October 31. for If you want trick-or-treaters, please come to the office for a sign to put on your door.”

As Halloween nears, here are some dos and don’ts that make sense to me:

Do support Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Don’t wear costumes that demean or exploit other peoples

Do use Fair Trade chocolate such as DivineEqual Exchange, and others

Don’t wear racist or sexist or tasteless costumes

Do prepare to give thanks for what God has done in the lives of faithful people (living and dead) who have touched your life

What would you add?

See you along the Trail.

I ate the chocolate

I ate the chocolate.

And I made a contribution to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

To the meeting of Presbyterian Social Ethicists, my friend brought a cauldron, some Fair Trade Chocolate, and Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF boxes.

“Why are you bringing chocolate?” I asked. “People will never eat it.”

It appears my friend was correct. Again.

Hopefully others will find some way to support the work of UNICEF this week and through the year.

See you along the Trail.
