All Hallows' Eve
I should've found a copy of the Charles Williams novel to read today. I can't believe it's already Halloween. My, this year has flown by. I'm off work with nothing on the agenda but AAPC's Reformation Day party tonight. Ethan's going as a cowboy and Levi as an Indian. I suppose I could pull out my Grace Church Choir cassock and go as a cleric from the English Reformation, but I doubt I will.
Reformed as I am, these days I find it hard to get into celebrating the Reformation, which I view as a bittersweet era in church history, a tragic necessity. I also think we're being sectarian if we remember our Reformed saints in a way that practically drowns out all the other saints - and on the eve of All Saints' Day, no less. I'm not saying Auburn Avenue is guilty of this, just pointing it out as a potential temptation.
We're thinking of going to lunch today at Bennigan's, where they're having Monte Madness Mondays right now. In trying to find out more about their Monte Cristo panini, specifically a photo, I ran across this humorous post.
