Ghosts goblins and ghouls: a monk's reflection
The Addam's Family celebrated it in style. Baby-boomers and Gen-Xers have never abandoned it, and their children are glad they didn't. Halloween is a festival having an influence from both Christian and non-Christian sources. Common to all of them are questions addressing life, death, good, and evil. By concentrating on ghosts, the discussion will deal with spooks and goblins in light of the Christian emphasis on the resurrection of the dead. All are welcome to attend!
