Holy Humor Sunday
April 3, 2016 – 10:00am Come, celebrate Holy Humor Sunday with us. Bring your funny bones and happy faces and be prepared to laugh in the joy of the Christian faith! Holy Humor Sunday, the Sunday after Easter, was for centuries the culmination of a week of joyous celebration of Jesus’ resurrection, a week rich in joy, laughter, parties, jokes, singing and dancing. This Greek custom stemmed from the musings of early theologians who considered the possibility that the Resurrection was God’s joke on the devil – Risus paschalis, the Easter laugh.Colorful clothes, evoking the hues of butterflies (symbol of the Resurrection) are suggested. Silly hats and happy clown faces are just fine, too!
Come to sing funny songs, listen to great music, laugh and share joy. Share a relaxed, fun service of worship as we celebrate God’s surprises on this day of happiness and laughter.
Leading the service will be the vibrant musician-composer, Paul Vasile (http://www.paulvasile.com/).
