New International Version (NIV)
22 “As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.”
Charlie Brown: Who are you writing to, Linus?
Linus: This is the time of year to write to the Great Pumpkin. On Halloween night, the Great Pumpkin rises out of his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys for all the children!
Charlie Brown: You must be crazy. When are you going to stop believing in something that isn't true?
Linus: When *you* stop believing in that fellow with a red suit and the white beard who goes, "Ho, ho, ho!"
Charlie Brown: We're obviously separated by denominational differences.
The candy is ready but no trick-or-treaters have found their way down the muddy path to our front door. Yes, it's a rainy Halloween. On TV "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" finds Linus once again sitting in the pumpkin patch. Sally is there too, waiting impatiently. The season is passing and soon it will be . . . Christmas. Life continues. Our unchanging God remains good.
