Today, the Solid Rock Library is introducing Wacky Wednesday–some fun ways to look at books and reading on a monthly basis.
Christian reading is not all serious and grim. We could ask, where did all the laughter go, people? So let’s get started with a book compiled by Ann Spangler and Shari MacDonald, Look Who’s Laughing! They call it “Rib-Tickling Stories of Fun, Faith, Family and Friendship.” These stories certainly range from delightful right up to hilarious!
Some of today’s funniest writers and speakers await you inside. Ken Davis has thoughts to share about air bags. Becky Freeman exposes the sensuous woman. Dave Meurer takes a manly look at menopause. Armed with the world’s ultimate vacuum cleaner, Chonda Pierce wages war on the dust mite.
If you have ever been to a Women of Faith conference, you will know just how much fun this book really is and will recognize some of the writers: Marilyn Meberg, Barbara Johnson, and, of course, Patsy Clairmont. These women always deliver the best in laughter.
But most comics can not out-do children for their blunt, honest and joyful words with these mini-thoughts:
A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, “And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?” One bright little girl replied, Because people are sleeping.”
Dear God, Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother. – Larry
Dear God, Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy. – Love Joyce
You can pick up this amusing and comical book in the Solid Rock Library. Is that you laughing for a change?
