Laughing



I'm sending you to this blog post of Art Smith's just in case you haven't found it on your own yet. This posting is called I loved the laughing... Have a look; you'll love the laughing too I'm certain.

Art and Paul Davis have a blog based on their travels in different parts of the world, different parts of the church. The blog is called This is What I Know... and in it they share pictures and stories from their respective travels. You can subscribe and have updates mailed directly to your email box, just as you do What's the Good Word!

Both Paul and Art are avid photographers, so you'll see many, many beautiful pictures. But you'll also see faces--faces of pastors and ministers, of children and youth, of places and plants, of food and festivals! (I'm sorry for all these exclamation points; good writers ought not to over-use the exclamation point. But what can you do when every sentence is exclamatory!)

I like the opportunity to see the faces of the World Church. I remember very well that statement we embraced back at the turn of the century:

We will become a worldwide church, dedicated to peace, reconciliation and healing of the spirit.

Art and Paul give us a picture, both in word and photograph of what some parts of that worldwide church look like. I love to see those faces, to hear the story of how the worship went, what the youth camp looks like, where the congregation went for lunch together, what new community projects they're starting up, how the new church building construction is coming along. You will too, I'm sure.

Take the time to check out the link. And let us know what your thoughts are as you see those friendly Community of Christ faces from around the world.

  3. I suppose so.
    I just took a look at our blog stats. I suspect it's not coincidence that my "laughing" post just edged out all our other posts for number one most viewed post. :-) I hope all my friends in ECMC will keep following our humble blog.
