A remarkable video: “Halloween – Trick or Treat?”

October 18, 2013

From the Rev. Glen Scrivener of All Souls Eastbourne, in the United Kingdom, here is a remarkably creative video on the Christian origins of All Hallows Eve, and a most poetic reminder that the Light is far stronger.  I will post one verse below, but the entirety of the poem can be read here.  (And I hope you will read the whole thing.)


The future is futile for forces of evil;
And so they did scorn them in times Medieval.
For this is the nature of shadow and gloom;
In the gleaming of glory there can be no room.
What force is resourced by the echoing black?
When the brightness ignites can the shadow push back?
These ‘powers’ of darkness, if such can be called,
Are banished by brilliance, by blazing enthralled.
