Description

Halloween may not be quite what you think…

While Halloween can often be a time associated with ghosts, devils and darkness, this video is designed to share the good news that Jesus is the light of the world!

In this Spoken Word, Glen Scrivener unpacks the medieval origins of Halloween. He explores how the Church would mock the forces of darkness, knowing that the future is futile for any such force.

This video starts with the feel of a modern day Halloween, complete with dressed-up children 'trick or treating'… but it goes on to point us to Jesus - the Light of the world.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • What do you make of the origins of Halloween?
  • Discuss the nature and effect of light... what do you think Jesus means when he says he is the 'Light of the world'?
