Spirit on Tap: God Is Still Laughing
September 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. F. Christopher Anderson
Does God have a sense of humor? Is there humor in creation? Is humor a good thing? Did Jesus have a sense of humor? Does the Bible have funny stories? Where did humor come from? Why do some Christians have a negative attitude about humor? Dr. F. Christopher Anderson will address these questions in his presentation.
