Samhain, All Saints and All Souls Special – Church Back Home – October 31 – Nov 2, 2016

Interestingly, the Pagan holiday of Samhain in the Northern Hemisphere coincides with All Saint’s Day and All Souls’ Day. And in the Southern Hemisphere it coincides with Walpurgis Night. While there are those who would make accusations of copying holidays, we need to consider the likelihood that different people might be looking at the same thing from their own perspective.

The book of Revelation shows even more, with the inclusion beyond the elite 144,000. Beyond them, there was a group which nobody could number, in white robes and holding palms. So much for those who would like to make us feel defeated.

For some reason, this was a difficult service to do, including a physical illness and a few other things. But here it is, including some special prayers included for the benefit of those we love who have crossed over.

21st Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – October 16, 2016

Here is one of the more over-interpreted Epistle readings, and the fact is that it is really very straightforward. For all of the extra “stuff” some might want to add, the answer is simply to use the protection you have been given to keep yourself from danger.

Understand that sin is really about, and you’ll understand. We don’t want to replace something that’s worth the effort with some “quickie” that only brings brief gratification.
