In the October 10 issue, LinC takes a look at the haunted houses that will open their doors and the cobwebs and skeletons that deck out the stores, while Americans turn to all things dark and gloomy. During this most ghoulish season, we tackle the darkest and gloomiest topic of all: hell. Key Scriptures are: Psalm 139:1-12; Matthew 10:26-28, 32-33; Luke 16:19-31; and John 4:3-15.
In the October 17 issue, after having taken a look in recent issues at eating disorders, excessive dieting, and how our culture is obsessed with thinness, LinC looks at the other side of the issue: How does our culture promote overeating and poor nutrition through marketing, school lunch menus, and larger portions. We also consider when going on a diet is the healthy thing to do.
