"And Sarah said, 'All who hear of this will laugh with me.'"
"There is too much solemnity among the saints.' - C.S. Lewis
Laughter binds the saints of old, both ancient Jewish and early Christian, with the people of God's promise today. Laughter is to be engaged in fully and celebrated often as we reflect the personality of our Creator when enjoying life, each other, and the communal nature of laughter.
Terry Lindvall uses the story of Sarah and her son Isaac--whose name literally means laughter--to show the inherent benefit people of faith have in enjoying a good laugh together.
