.In the Craver household, we have observed the holiday traditionally at times, and at other times we chose a more conservative substitute. I like going outside with our children and mingling with the neighbors. I like seeing creative or humorous exhibits. I like challenging the Jehovah's Witnesses when they try to slip a Watch Tower magazine in the bag instead of candy. And finally, I like taking pictures to try and get the most out of the costumes. Here, we have Wolverine. I accented his hairy face, and enlarged his canines. Then I placed a grainy layer on top of the pic, so that it looks tougher.
.I have to admit that I liked Brother Greg's duck hunter costume. I wonder if he was going for your regular, run-of-the-mill duck hunter or the famed Elmer Fudd.
.This year, they'll have to hit the streets without me. I'll be working too late for the walkabout. But today is not just Halloween; it is also Reformation Day, and my small-group's tradition is to watch a Martin Luther movie together each year for this.
.Did any of your churches sing "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" on Reformation Sunday? Mine didn't, but I kinda wish they would have.
