The street was full of goblins, jedi, and walking pumpkins. Who were these people? The easiest way to answer this question is to study the big people accompanying these diminutive characters. The big people, of course, were the parents. And no matter what the little ones looked like, underneath all the costuming and disguise, they were the children of those parents. In the Gospel of Matthew, we are assured that no matter what Jesus “looked like” he was the son of kings and the son of a mother. Similarly, we are children of God and children of mothers. All of us.
