Easter Joy & Holy Humor

  • by

4-week series on Mondays, April 5, 12, 19, 26 | 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

facilitated by Mary Kay Whitacre, DMin and Debbie Carmody
Free-will offering (suggested contribution, $40)
Too often in our emphasis on Lenten penance, we forget the more important message is to be a people of Easter joy.  These four sessions will be an opportunity to immerse ourselves in holy humor, exploring the spiritual, social, physical, and emotional benefits of laughter, and learning techniques for boosting our spirits. After spending the weeks of Lent working on conversion, let’s celebrate the new life of the Easter season and pray with a different kind energy. (NOTE: All sessions will be recorded for those unable to attend live.)
Please register by March 31. Once your registration is completed, you should receive a confirmation email within a week. Zoom meeting links, along with any additional details and materials Mary Kay & Debbie would like you to have, will be emailed to you the day prior to each session.  We look forward to seeing you online.
As a free-will offering, no payment is required, but we are grateful for any amount contributed, if you are able. Click here if you would like to contribute now.
