Rosie Perera led us on a laugh track through the evidence in the Bible that laughter is God’s gift to us. Our culture has a reputation for dour prudishness, but Mennonite comedians are gaining in popularity! In the OT, we read of Abraham & Sarah’s hilarity at the prospect of becoming natural parents at the ages of 100 & 90 respectively. In the NT, wordplay abounds, including Jesus using satire, hyperbole, and playfully preposterous analogies in his parables like the speck and the log in the eye. We can have the last laugh at Satan by accepting Christ’s offer of salvation. [KH]
