I live in Salem, Massachusetts. We have 31 days of Halloween in Salem. I have been here for 20 years. I pastored a church in town for almost 18 of those years. This means that I have effectively experienced 600 years of Halloween. We have had teams of people from chruches around the US and UK join us for outreach on the streets, and we have sought to be a blessing to the almost million visitors that come to our city each year. So, I’ve got a few things to say about Halloween. Here are just a few links to my thoughts on the holiday the many things my friends and I have been a part of through the years:
