April 30 – Holy Humor Sunday
HOLY HUMOR SUNDAY
Sunday, April 30, 2017
You are invited to celebrate the joy of the resurrection with laughter and fun!
Many American churches have resurrected an old Easter custom begun in the early centuries of Christianity: “Bright Sunday” was a laughter-filled celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on the Sunday after Easter. The custom was rooted in the musings of early church theologians that God played a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead.
Deer Park UMC continues the tradition (two weeks after Easter) this year with the theme “Don’t miss the boat!” Think Noah…Ark…Rainbow…
Ways to join the celebration:
- Wear rainbow colors
- Bring your favorite stuffed animal
- Invite a friend…or two
- Just come & wear your brightest smile!
