Church Humour is a rich collection of clean, decent and amusing jokes, anecdotes, facetiae, quips, quotes and sparkling verses, all intended to bring more sunshine and laughter into your life. Some of these will prick you to chuckle, others will tickle you to bursts of laughter and still others will amuse you and leave you musing. The Bible says: “Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time” (Prov. 17:22). There is so much of suffering, sorrow, pain, poverty and persecution in this world that the ability to approach life situations with a sense of humour is a must for healthy living. And this book will bring smiles and cheers to the world that daily listens to too much of sad news. By portraying in humorous and anecdotal form the varied life of the preacher and his relationship with his parishioners and the world at large, Church Humour enlarges the boundaries of cheer and warmth. As the book is a sure antidote to gloom for all readers it will be particularly useful to preachers, teachers, social workers and to all those who are called to work with and for other people.

All this, done in good humour, often serving to enlighten the reader on certain little-known facts connected with sacred scripture, evokes laughter on the one hand, and, on the other, makes the reader think — in silence and aloud — in terms of both facts and apparent contradictions one comes across in the text.

Laughter can be produced both by fiction that amuses as well as by things that amaze. But helping people stay healthy by way of lifting the pall of gloom and having them rock with laughter is no laughing matter. Rather, it is serious business.
