Medical science tells us that we have facial muscles whose only purpose is to help us laugh
Longwood, FL (Vocus) September 10, 2010
Humor, like faith, can be powerful medicine. Whether it’s from the pulpit or from the mouths of children, humor and laughter are reminiscent of the love and goodness of God. They become a great antidote for the sadness, doubt, and anxiety that assail people on their journey through life. Collected in David M. Varner’s new anthology from Xulon Press, Sunday Funnies to Tickle the Soul: An Anthology of Faith-Based Humor ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-406-2), are humorous anecdotes and observations from clergy and laypersons based on their experiences working in God’s vineyard. Also included in this heartwarming book are the priceless words of children that reveal the simple yet profound depth of their faith and their unvarnished views of the world and the wonder and goodness of God.
“Medical science tells us that we have facial muscles whose only purpose is to help us laugh,” the author says. “God, in whose image we are made, must have given us these muscles for a reason. May Sunday Funnies to Tickle the Soul become that reason to smile, laugh, and give thanks to God for His gifts of life, faith, and humor.”
