Seriously, my small group is hilarious. OK, we have our share of meaty Bible study lessons, deep discussions, and intense personal sharing.
But these ladies are fabulously funny. The group includes a charismatic Catholic, an Evangelical, a couple of Methodists, a pair of Pentecostals, and a Presbyterian. We cover all sorts of topics with bluntness and honesty, baring our souls each week and respecting one another’s unique perspective.
These sweet friends are all sincerely spiritual, but they are also side-splittingly and riotously entertaining.
And invariably, someone will burst out laughing and set us all to chuckling and chortling until somebody snorts. Then it gets worse, but in such a mirthful way.
We call it “The Anoinking.” And we are abundantly blessed.
A couple of weeks ago, we had a lesson on sadness. By the end of the morning, we were all crying – with laughter. Clearly, we had all been released from whatever stuff our souls had carried into the meeting.
God is good. And I am pretty convinced He has a particularly good time on Thursday mornings.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter
and your lips with shouts of joy.
(Job 8:21, NIV)
