The Pastor's Post
Recently, while on vacation, I had the opportunity to attend the Steve Martin / Martin Short Show, “A Night You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life” at Comerica Theater in Phoenix. I have been a fan of both men for several years and currently take an online comedy class with Steve Martin. So I had to see this show.
And I am so glad I did. It was a fun-filled evening! I didn’t have the best seats but that didn’t matter as the laughter reached all the way to the rafters. I laughed so hard I cried during the first five minutes and Steve and Marty hadn’t even taken the stage yet (the first five minutes were some of their famous and funny movie clips). Steve Martin’s opening line was even a shout out to Sun City – sort of. I still find myself chuckling as I recall the show’s hilarity.
I have said before that we cannot laugh our troubles away, but we can laugh in the midst of our troubles. The show was the Sunday evening following the white supremacy rally and senseless violence in Charlottesville, VA. I found it strangely comforting, and reassuring, to be able to laugh along with 5,000 other people knowing full well that all of us gathered in that theater had differing views and beliefs. Humor can help to overcome differences, if only for an evening.
I am grateful for that Sunday night. However, it only took a few more hours to be reminded that we still have plenty of troubles to address as a nation. But I have felt better in thinking about those challenges and the role I play in facing those difficulties. And while I am always grateful for my faith and the difference all the accompanying faith practices make in my life, I credit one two-hour comedy show – and some crazy good music, too – for lifting my spirits in just the way I needed right when I needed it.
Once again, here’s to the blessed gift of laughter,
Welcome to the United Church of Sun City
