Handling halloween wisely – J. John Canon

This is a well written piece by a minister from the United Kingdom named J. John [Canon].  He is an excellent and thought provoking speaker. He does have a website and while I haven’t looked over most of it, I felt this piece below was appropriate to pass on considering halloween is coming up.
