Dear congregation, today we gather in the house of the Lord to celebrate the joy of life and the humour that it brings. As the great theologian, Woody Allen once said, “I’m not afraid of death; I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” So let us all take a moment to appreciate the humour in our own mortality.

Now, I know some of you may wonder, “What’s so funny about life?” Well, let me tell you a little story. A man goes to his doctor and says, “Doctor, every time I drink coffee, I get a sharp pain in my eye.” The doctor replies, “Have you tried taking the spoon out of the cup first?” See, life is funny!

But let’s not forget that humour can also be a powerful tool for spreading love and positivity. As the great comedian Ellen DeGeneres once said, “I believe we are all here for a reason. I believe that reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.” So let’s all be torch-bearers and spread joy wherever we go.

And finally, let us not forget the importance of laughter in our daily lives. As the Bible says, “A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” So go ahead and laugh, let your spirits soar, and remember that life is too short of taking ourselves too seriously.

In conclusion, let us embrace the humour in life, spread love and positivity, and never forget to laugh. Amen, and have a hilarious day!
