Sunday, May 3, 2015: “Laugh, I Thought I’d Die”

Host: Ryan Terry

Presenter: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

Is there any connection between laughing and spirituality? Is it all right to tell jokes in church, even in sermons? Does God like it when the sound of laughter flows out of our worship services, or does Holy Mystery prefer that we are sober and serious about our religious practice?

Rev. Greene comes out squarely in favor of making joyful noise in church. She will reflect on the seemingly-contradictory truth that some of life’s most deeply serious and spiritual times bring out laughter, even in the midst of our tears. She will also manage to slip in some worshipful jokes!

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is available.

Please join us Sunday at our new location located in the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West in Twin Falls at 10:30 AM. The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West.
