Having Fun at Church

Mar 25th 2009

So I’m pondering a story this week.  It’s a Jesus-story and we are going to explore it together this weekend.  It’s all about Jesus feeding a Bryce Jordan Center sized crowd with a sack lunch.  One of my thoughts is… I wish I could’ve been there just to see the look on everyone’s face.  What a great day to be at church! So anyway, I think there were many times when it had to have been a kick to hang out with Jesus.  The stuff he did, the stuff he said;  5 small loaves of bread and 2 small fish — turns into fast food for a crowd.  Can you imagine Jesus doing that without a small on his face?  I’m thinking at some point, somebody in the crowd started belly-laughing.  It was just too good to be true.

When is the last time you had fun with Jesus?  Child-like giddiness.  Deep-hearted joy.  Unexpected laughter from unsuspected wonder.  I think sometimes we give people the impression that God is perpetually sad, when He is the happiest being in the universe!

So…the video that I attached below has little to do with this sack-lunch story.  I just thought it was funny.  So enjoy.  Laugh a little.
