For those of us who need to remember to laugh amid the craziness of Holy Week. Enjoy!
Category Archives: Farcical Liturgy
I found this liturgy by Thom Shuman and I had to share! What a brilliant representation of the absurdity of the cross and the defiance of the empty tomb. It reminds me of the reason why I prefer to call Easter Sunday “‘Suck it, Rome!’ Sunday.” May we all continue to preach the joke that God has forever played on death!
One: This is the time to rejoice!
All: What better time than now!
One: This is the day to laugh:
What did the cabbage pastor
say to the people?
Pastor: Lettuce pray!
One: How many choir directors does
it take to change a light bulb?
Choir: No one knows, because no one
ever watches the director!
One: How many Presbyterians does it take
to change a light bulb?
All: Change? Presbyterians don’t believe
One: What’s the greatest joke ever?
All: The one God played on
death on Easter morning!
I dedicate the following liturgy to a person who shall remain unnamed. May this litany be a source of strength and hope in the dark days ahead.
