Comment from Jason Stewart (staff):

Thank you, everyone, for the comments and dialogue. I am excited about the thoughts I read here and the questions. As we approach this holiday in our culture, I want to share a post with you from a friend who is a Family Pastor in Texas.

I am having some great conversations with many of you around this topic. There are some great questions on how our family walks into the the tension of engaging our culture for Jesus (vs staying in the ends of the spectrum of conforming to the culture or avoiding culture). I find that how we engage this holiday and other aspects of this culture are not as black and white as we would like for it to be.

Here are some quotes from the the post, Instilling Identity in your Kids this Halloween, that stood out to me (I hope you will take five minutes to read and reflect):

  • …not about convincing you that one way to celebrate is better than another. 
  • The small shift from “you” to “we” is a powerful one.
  • The principle that our activity flows from our identity is seen throughout Scripture, where God frequently reminds us who we are before telling us how to live.
  • Starting with identity rather than activity is one way that we can parent our kids as God parents us.

Yesterday, I had the question “with doing this in your neighborhood on Halloween, how do you help your kids with the scary costumes and things of the holiday?” We are discerning. We trust God that He will lead us as parents and protect us while we as a family represent Him to the people around us. Just as this post gives an example, we take time to discuss what we value as a family found in Scripture and in the life of Jesus.

The truth of who we are determines what we do is foundational in every aspect for me and my family. That is why we have taken the time to put words to who we are and teach this to our children (and remind ourselves as parents). This helps us navigate our hearts and actions as a family. It gives greater purpose and intentionality to our days for the Gospel.

Please remove me from all the Bridgeway city emails!
I don’t remember my password that I put in so long ago . I only joined the homeschool group and started getting every events email and notice and now I can’t seem to get it to stop coming.

Thank you,
