Holy Humor Sunday April 28
Be ye fishers of men. You catch them - He'll clean them.
The Resurrection of Christ on Easter turned the world upside down, so we’re doing the same with worship on Sunday, April 28. We will rejoice and laugh together as we continue to celebrate God having the final laugh over the forces of evil. Christ is risen, and new life has conquered death!
Knowing that he was about to be betrayed, tortured, and crucified, Jesus told his disciples just before his arrest: “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be full.” (John 15:11)
For centuries, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant churches celebrated the Resurrection after Easter Sunday with parties, picnics, joke-telling, pranks, songs, and dancing. The early Greek Christians called the Sunday after Easter, "Bright Sunday," but today it is sometimes called "Holy Humor Sunday."
So wear your wacky hats or your brightest, mismatched clothing as we become "fools for Christ." Expect a lot of surprises, laughter and joy!
