Thanks Malcolm for the laughs!

Many years ago I saw the stage play ‘Godspell’. The abiding impression was of Jesus being depicted as a ‘court jester’ and causing hilarity among his disciples and hearers. With humour he poked fun at the ‘conventional wisdom’ of the day and shared his ‘alternative wisdom’ in brilliant one-liners and provocative parables.

In our more serious, literal and religious reading of his comments and hyperbole we often miss the humour.
With the partisan nonsense in the lead up to the election it is wise that we laugh, otherwise we’d cry - or is it both? I'm sure God does!
