Laughing in church
Fr. Tony preached on the serious topics of sin and repentance today, as befits Lent, but when we posed after the service so we could capture in photos something of our worship together there was altogether too much hilarity to sound very dour. Which is a good thing. We were all gesturing toward one another and I had a hard time getting a photo that actually looked as though Tony were preaching and we were dutifully listening. Here Anne Marie is mimicking the preacher's gestures. And after that we were all gloriously misbehaving.
If church is not a place of joy, even during Lent, then you really should not be going there.
That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
