Laughing One

"What serious theologian left out your smile
When religious doctrine were being penned?
If you join us in our terrible tribulations,
Most surely you will join us in our laughter, too.
Chuckling at our humorous adventures,
Taking delight in a happy child's silliness,
Enjoying our little giggles and large guffaws,
Laughing with us at the ludicrous in life.
O divine being with a sense of humor,
How should we not be aware of you?

"Today: Divine laughter echoes inside me."

— Joyce Rupp in Fragments of Your Ancient Name
