Laughter and the Human Condition

I have just put together this ‘pitch’ for a piece of Continuing Ministerial Development’ that I have been asked to deliver (I’m looking forward to preparing this one)
“Laughter and the Human Condition:
Was Jesus a comedian? Laughter is a key component of being human. It can connect us to others, it can reveal truth … and it can at times conceal or mask something deeper. What is our theology of laughter? Where do we use it, where do we misuse it? Thinking too about the whole arena of discipleship and spiritual growth. What does humour reveal about vulnerability rather than defendedness; humility rather than pride; and the True Self rather than the False self. A shared conversation around how humour works, what makes us laugh, and the healing power of laughter.”
