At least once a year, there is a fear-mongering movement out there claiming that they know the world is going to end at a specific date or event, and of course, it's never really the end.
But we like to have a little fun whenever an apocalypse rolls around!
And sure enough, some people were convinced that the Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse event this past Sunday was our last day on earth.
Here's how we handled the end of the world:

It's late September, which means that your favorite grocery store is OVERRUN with giant bags of Halloween candy!
It's hard not to exalt candy to a place of idolatry when Halloween is just around the corner. So, we decided to have a little fun and make over some of our favorite Christian songs and hymns as if they were written about candy instead!
Here what we got from our Hashtag Party:
Who doesn't love to learn new things? Well, we all know that it doesn't matter how many times you pick up the Bible, we can always find something new to us inside those pages! We've already covered some, but here are 7 more things about the Bible that you might not know!
1. God isn't even mentioned in 2 books of the Bible.
Was God snubbed by some authors of the Bible? I mean, the Bible is a book inspired by God, written by men of God, that is about God, and the Word IS God! So, how can God be absent from two whole books? Well, He is and He isn't. God is not mentioned in Song of Solomon or Esther. Song of Solomon is a book of love poetry (must be 18 years old to read!) between and man and woman. While God isn't specifically mentioned, many Christians consider this book an allegory for God's love for Israel, or for Christ's love for His Bride, the church. Some Christians even believe these are the ONLY meanings behind Song of Solomon, because there is no way someone can be righteous and enjoy such a sensuous sexual relationship within a Christian marriage... The other book where God isn't mentioned is Esther, which is largely a story of the Jewish people's life and successes while living under Persian rule. Though God may not be a main character, He is certainly behind-the-scenes.
2. Lamentations is a Book of Passion
Lamentations is often ascribed to the prophet Jeremiah and, along with the Book of Jeremiah, we find several passionate, almost depressing, laments. (Jeremiah - The Goth Kid of the Bible.) It's easy to see these books as the rantings of a moody, possibly clinically depressed prophet . But, in truth, Jeremiah wasn't a sad sack. He was a passionate speaker and fighter. He certainly was emotional, but it was mostly brought out by his compassion and empathy for the lost in his community. He wept for the sinful, he argued with God, he opposed false teachers, and he suffered for his stances. He suffered because he cared with a passion few ever feel.
