Bring Humor to Sunday Liturgy

The Holy Humour Sunday Liturgy is found in the Iona Abbey book called” Fire and Bread Resources for Easter Day to Trinity Sunday” by Ruth Burgess.

It is a great liturgy that helps people to laugh and to think of God as someone who is amused, who laughs and who wants us to laugh.

Instead of a sermon I always tell a series of good, clean jokes.  Sometimes I get people to help me take turns telling the jokes.

Faith in Action:

Nominations, Please

The Nominating Committee for the Eastern Synod is meeting soon in preparation for next summer's Assembly 2012, July 4-8 in Waterloo, Ontario.

The committee is responsible for selecting potential candidates to serve on the Synod Council (Term 2012-2016). Two candidates for each vacant and retiring position are required in advance of the Assembly (biographical details for nominees will be included in the Bulletin of Reports); as usual, further nominations from the floor of the convention are always accepted.
