I do not pretend to know what will happen on Nov. 4. Here's what I do know: America will never be the same. The good news is that this declaration is not necessarily bad news. America can be better than ever. On Nov. 5 America will begin to define a new normal, the next equilibrium, and reintroduce its democratically certified brand to the world.

Do you know how many times I've been asked that question? "What's a Lutheran?" According to ASARB, as of 2000, the percentage of the population in Newton County that called themselves Lutheran was right about zero. Of course, that was well before Abiding Grace started, but still, I was pretty surprised to see that statistic. But the more I talked to people, and the more I told them that I was from Abiding Grace LUTHERAN Church, the more I realized that that statistic was pretty close to right on.

In Ephesians 2:19, Paul tells us that we are members of God's household. That means we are the family of God. The church is composed of everyone, everywhere, who has turned away from their sins and trusted Jesus Christ as their personal savior, and are walking in a daily relationship of obedience to him and his word. Just as our individual family members are different from one another, so there is great diversity in the family of God. We are many, yet we are one family.

Halloween is a favorite holiday of Americans because for one day we get to pretend we are something we're not whether it be a princess, a superhero or a bloodsucking monster. Through the years we remember our best costumes, most terrifying tricks and even the house in the neighborhood that gave raisins or the dreaded travel toothbrush.
