As you know, getting drunk and doing drugs at work is unwise because you’ll get in trouble. They’re definite no-no’s, along with other obvious no-no’s, like stealing from your company and vandalizing the office. But there are two subtler no-no’s that are rampant in the workplace today.
I should be okay with hearing the word “no” when I expected to hear the word “yes.” But I’m not. I am surprised (not in the good way), and I am worried about the implications of that “no.”

It's almost impossible to completely avoid Halloween. Even if you decide not to trick-or-treat, Halloween decorations, candy, and costumes will still exist. Here are a few ideas to turn an often-spooky holiday into a great ministry opportunity.
