Apparently its Deepavali today. I have had my head buried in my computer, completing my counselling assignment on child sexual abuse, only coming up for air for some occasional blogging. But this evening our neighbours came and gave us some Indian sweets and other indescribable food that tasted nice and spicy and sweet. Food offer to idols? Not sure, probably, but I gave thanks to God for it and for them. I wonder how many experience “food offered to idols” as a live issue? Actually, I think most Christians do, but maybe not so explicitly.
