A time to laugh

Steve Wild finds humour in church life and the teachings of Christ

A time to laugh

The Revd Steve Wild

The Revd Steve Wild

THE PSALMIST SAYS, “From his throne in heaven the Lord laughs” (Psalm 2:4), and in Ecclesiastes 3:4 it says, there is “a time to weep and a time to laugh”.

Not long ago, I met a man who told me how, as a youngster, his minister announced to the youth club that next Sunday he was going to preach on “why you shouldn’t be superstitious”. Lots of young people came to hear him. Before he reached the pulpit, he walked under a ladder, put up an umbrella, kicked a toy black cat, broke a mirror and trod on it seven times. Then he walked up the pulpit steps, tripped, fell and broke his arm! It’s good to laugh and good to laugh at ourselves.
