Tract or Treat

Tract or TreatToday is Halloween — or, as Ray Comfort likes to say, National Evangelism Day, when people actually come to your doorstep for free stuff. It’s probably the easiest opportunity to hand out tracts and engage your neighbors in casual conversation.

Since this was only the second year we’ve lived here in Charlotte — and we didn’t participate last year — we had no idea how many kids would show up at our door. So, we bought 42 full-size Hershey bars and wrapped them with Million Dollar Bills. (Note to self: We ran out in less than an hour. Get more candy next year.)

I figure, if you’re going to give out Gospel tracts, you don’t want the stigma of being “that person” in the neighborhood, if you can help it — so at the very least, give out the best candy you can with the tracts.

I actually had one parent respond, “Oh, this is the good house!”

I almost challenged her definition of “good,” but thought that could wait for our next encounter.
