I hope you’re all planning on attending worship tomorrow! Tomorrow is Holy Hilarity Sunday, always held on the Sunday following Easter. It is a time honored day from the 1700’s when the church has celebrated the cosmic joke God played on the devil raising Jesus from the dead. The day has been brought back to the Christian church in the last 25 years and is used in many denominations and throughout the world. It has been called many names – Holy Humor Sunday, Bright Sunday and others. It is a worshipful service enveloped by laughter, jokes and fun.
And a reminder that on Tuesday, at 6 p.m. we will start out the evening with a supper of soup and bread followed by a presentation and conversation allowing Veterans’ Voices be heard, their needs, difficulties and what might be done to assist those who served this country so well. The head of the Veterans’ Liberty House in Manchester will be giving a brief talk and answering questions for us. We would love to have a head count so there is enough food so please rsvp to this email if you plan to attend. MUMC’s new group, VOICES (formerly the Welcoming Task Force) is hosting this needed conversation.
Blessings on you and this day that God has given to us.
