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.
