Sermon: Lighten Up

woman-poor-laughter“Lighten Up!”

(January 22, 2017) Sometimes we take ourselves far too seriously! Although we never want to use humor to hurt or demean anyone, laughter can often heal and uplift. Even the Biblical matriarch, Sarah, demonstrates several kinds of laughter: from disbelief and laughter at the impossible or painful, to the laughter of joy and hope. (Isaiah 9:1-4; Genesis 18: 1-4, 9-15, 21: 1-6)

As if to illustrate the point, I had numerous technical problems with this recording. The source recording and volume changes a couple of times throughout. It is especially poor at the beginning and so the first minute or so is taken off a different mic and sounds really far away. Sorry about that!
