It sounds like a game for children, but apparently some people take very
seriously the program described in a local newspaper. On the first night of the
full moon they invited readers to “allow the energy of the full moon to
provide abundance in your life, release those habits or patterns that no longer

The article went on to say that they would “celebrate a Full Moon Circle
and create a medicine wheel …. Bring your own drum or rattle and claim your
place in the universe.”
Christians know their place in the universe. It belongs to us. “All things
are yours,” wrote the apostle Paul. We don’t need a rattle or a drum to
claim our inheritance. We don’t have to wait for the full moon to find an
abundant life or to be released from bad habits!
