Susan Sparks - an ex - lawyer turned comedian and Baptist minister - presents a convincing case that the power of humor radiates far beyond punch lines. Laughter can help you:Remove the fearful mask of a God who doesn't laughDebunk the myths that you don't deserve joyFind perspective when faced with adversityExercise forgiveness for yourself and othersReclaim play as a spiritual practiceHeal - emotionally, physically, and spirituallyKeep your faith when God is silentLive with elegance, beauty, and generosity of spiritWhatever your faith tradition - or if you have none at all - join this veteran of the punch line and the pulpit in reclaiming the forgotten humor legacy found in thousands of years of human spiritual history.
