The Rev David Lillvis proclaims Jesus observation of a widow’s giving in the light of humor. Can we integrate a sense of humor in living the life of Christ. He notes that humor loosens us up, calls us into community, and gives us healing for new possibilities in life.
O God, whose blessed Son came into the world that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God and heirs of eternal life: Grant that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves as he is pure; that, when he comes again with power and great glory, we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
