Might I gently ask when was the last time you had a real fine guffaw in a church service?
Now don’t cry out that joy is offensive in a service. What about our faith is dour and glum? Dour and glum describes the attitude that the Pharisees clung to.

Remember angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.
Then were our mouths filled with laughter, and our tongues with singing. Then they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them. (Psalm 126:2, AMP)
Prayer- God, you created laughter. We thank you for its light-hearted effect on us all. Amen.
