This year, teach your kids about recycling and compost- ing while having a great time at your own "Green Halloween" party: With a little planning and some creativity, it's easy to have a "Green Halloween." "Recycling and composing are a good thing for kids to learn about every day," says Charles Hall, Executive Director of Keep Troup Beautiful, "And holidays are an especially good time to teach children about protect- ing the environment by changing your habits." Here are some ideas on how to hose a "Green Halloween" Party: • Send invitations on a nap- kin. Have guests bring their invitations to use as their nap- kin for the party. • Have guests wear cos- tumes made from old clothes or from things purchased from Goodwill. • Decorate with natural products like fall leaes, corn stalks or straw. Compost them after the event. • Use plastic utensils that can be reused or recycled. For cider and hot chocolate, use ceramic mugs that kids can take home as a party favor. • Other party favors could include fruit, homemade snacks such as "popcorn on the cob" or crafts made at the party. • Buy a few yards of Halloween material at a fab- ric store for festive table- cloths and treat bags that can be reused. • Have a craft-making table that utilizes all bever- age or food containers (make sure to check for sharp edges on cans. Recycle unusable containers). Call it the "Trash "darkside"isanattemptofSatan to Treasures" table.

In this pastor's opinion, there are two major problems with the celebration ..... of Halloween. First, it causes people to become directly involved with the occult and sec- ondly, it opens the door for our children to be exposed to more profound devices of Satan. later on in life. The Bible says in Ephesians 5:11, And have no fel- lowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. "Christians and Christian parents have a respon- sibility not to become involved in and not to let their children to become involved in those things that would bring dishon- or to the Lord Jesus. Each par- ent needs to go to the Word of God and settle this issue for themselves. We are told in 2 Timothy 2: 15, "Study to show thyself approved unto God..." A careful study of the Scripture will reveal the dangers associ- ated with Halloween. Song of Solomon says, "Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have ten- der grapes." Although this may seem like a little thing, it is the little things that creep in and become big things. Our children are a precious gift from the Lord, may we do all we can to protect them from the harm that Satan would like to bring their (706) 884-2594 Blaze, Tr Bou 35 and ) N,... fo’ oormzvr ptmlume on an ' pR Is 16.75%.
