House Church Talk - election day

I laughed out loud when I read your original post, and again when you asked
if anyone laughed anymore.

Somewhat relating to laughter, I have been concerned lately about the lack
of the joy of the Lord in Christian circles. You know that I am somewhat
serious person myself. Many of us have serious concerns for our families,
loved ones, and the world in general.

But it is written of Jesus that He was annointed with the oil of joy above
that of His brethren. His joy did not interfere with His compassion, but I
get the impression that it aided in the healing of the suffering and pain of
those around Him.

That is my desire, to spread hope and joy where ever there is sadness and
dispair. Sometimes I need a healing myself before that can happen.

House Church Talk is sponsored by the House Church Network.

House Church Talk has been renamed. These discussions, via the web, now occur at the Radically Christian Cafe.
