The Pastor's Post
“Laugh, and the world laughs with you . . .” Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Easter Season Greetings,
Easter 2018 presented a particularly interesting opportunity for pastors. It is a rare occurrence for Easter to fall on April 1 which was April Fools’ Day. This hasn’t happened since 1956. It won’t happen again until 2029 and then again in 2040. And after that it won’t happen until next century.
I have been reading and hearing about pastors planning to put more humor in their sermons on Easter Sunday because it was also April Fool’s Day. Yet, there was still hesitation. One person wrote that humor can’t be used to escape the “heavy stuff” of the Bible. Another said that pastors still shouldn’t just get in the pulpit and tell jokes. Neither of them had anything to say about Holy Humor Sunday.
But we do have something to say about Holy Humor at United Church. We celebrate Holy Humor Sunday on April 8, not to escape the “heavy stuff” of the Bible or just to tell jokes, but because being made in the image of God, it is reasonable to believe that God has a sense of humor. When we celebrate the gift of humor, we are celebrating God. Besides, it is good to laugh; good for our minds, bodies, and our souls.
As a congregation celebrating Holy Humor Sunday, we are not alone. In the mid 1980’s, a group called the Fellowship of Merry Christians, began encouraging members to resurrect the old church observance of a joyful Easter Season celebration. Now, Holy Humor Sunday, or Brite Sunday as some call it, has become a tradition in an increasing number of faith communities across denominational lines including our faith community. This is our sixth year celebrating Holy Humor.
I encourage you to find the humor in life, find the humor in church, find the humor in the Bible, find the humor God has blessed us all with, and laugh! We do that together as a congregation and I believe that is part of God’s good news for us to share. Yes indeed, laugh, and the world laughs with us.
Here’s to good humor,
