Fun and Faith
We had a wonderful evening at our October meeting when Ian MacDonald had us laughing out loud. Ian has worked as Youth and Discipleship adviser for the Oxford diocese of the Church of England, but has more recently branched out as a stand up comedian. Whereas some comedians make fun of others, Ian had us laughing at ourselves, and in doing so made a powerful case for opening the windows and allowing the fresh air of laughter and humour to blow through the church, and perhaps blow away a few cobwebs at the same time. In an interview afterwards he revealed that he and his family have had their own difficulties to cope with, but that his faith in Christ enables him to ‘choose to laugh’ even in difficult circumstances. A packed house in Glasbury Village Hall had their faith both strengthened and challenged, and had a good laugh at the same time. A truly wonderful evening of fun and faith.
This coming month on Friday Nov 24th, we look forward to hearing Brian Hayward from Brynithel Community Church, Abertillery. Come and join us if you can.
