This coming Sunday we will try an ancient tradition (but a new one to us) called "Holy Humor Sunday."
In Leah Schade’s words, “In the early church, the Sunday after Easter was observed by the faithful as a day of joy and laughter with parties and shenanigans to celebrate ...Jesus’ resurrection. The custom of Bright Sunday, as it was called, came from the idea of some early church theologians that God played a joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead. So on this Sunday after Easter, parishioners and pastors played practical jokes on each other, drenched each other with water, sang, and danced. It was a time for clergy and people to tell jokes and to have fun.”
Alas, there will be no drenching on Zoom, but join us anyway at 10:30 tomorrow for this celebration of joy! DM us for Zoom link.
