Halloween, April Fool’s, Religious signs… Are you permitted to dress up

Happy wowday

Halloween gives you permission to dress up. April Fool’s, a chance to play a prank.

What if there was one day of the year where you had permission to do things that made people say, “wow.”

Acts of generosity or bravery or insight…

What if you focused and practiced and got your nerve up and leaned way over the edge, just one day of the year?

If you could get out of your comfort zone for a few hours in a way that benefited and delighted people you care about, what would that look and feel like?

Today might be your wowday. Or tomorrow.

Up to you.

1. On Halloween you didn’t get to go trick-or-treating. Instead you went to a Hallelujah Party at church where everyone had to dress up like a Bible character. Basically you had to wear a bathrobe.

2. The only time you could buy CDs is if they came from here:

3. You knew about all of the hidden, Satanic messages in rock songs if you played them backwards.

4. If one of your friends got a piercing other than her earlobes your first thought was, “Well, she’s definitely going to hell!”

5. Every time you heard a loud rumble of thunder in the middle of the night you thought it was The Rapture.

6. If you grew up in Church of God, your college options were either Lee University or Lee University.

7. You knew who these guys were:

9. You knew that Camp Meeting had nothing to do with exploring the woods.

10. Instead of calling adults Mr. Smith or Mrs. Jackson, it was Brother Smith and Sister Jackson.

11. If someone said “God is good” you knew to respond with “all the time” and then they would say “all the time” and you’d say “God is good.” It was basically a secret handshake.

12. The only R rated movie you were ever allowed to watch was The Passion of the Christ.

13. You had a cassette tape labeled “Michael W. Smith” but it was actually an MC Hammer mix tape because you would never be allowed to listen to that.

14. Everyone that had a tattoo was going to hell.

15. You got in trouble for taking the center cup out of the communion tray instead of just taking the next one in line.

16. Instead of joining the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, you were earning badges with the Royal Rangers and Missionettes.

17. You didn’t go to parties, you went to fellowship.

19. You knew that just because the pastor said he was about to close didn’t mean he wasn’t going to keep preaching for another 30-45 minutes.

21. Hip-hop was strictly forbidden, unless it was by this guy: TC Mark
