Vampires, Mummies, and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most…
These two lines are part of the chorus to a Jimmy Buffett song. It’s an oddly upbeat song about phobias – not really a Halloween tune, but the lyrics do fit the season. I always liked the song, and these word have stuck with me. Why put the Holy Ghost in with scary movie monsters? It makes me wonder two things:
Is there a difference between feeling scared to death and scared to life?
What is the church doing wrong if its children mistake the Holy Spirit for a monster?

“scared to life”–love it!
I think that’s why angels always say “Fear Not” – that scared to life feeling is just part of a holy encounter. Peace, Johnna
