Spiritual Preparation, Session 12: Humor (Sandpaper)

In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program

Take a moment and let your body and mind settle. If you are comfortable doing so, spend a few moments in peaceful meditation.

In preparation for this session on humor, you may wish to answer, for yourself, the council questions you will pose to the group:

  • When are some times that you have used (or might use) humor to "bounce" on the interdependent web?
  • When have you experienced humor that is cruel? What happened?
  • What do you think about humor as a religious tool?

As an adult leader, your opinion may have more influence than those of participants. Therefore, your personal disclosure should not become part of the discussion unless participants ask you a question directly. In that case, be sure to preface your opinion by setting the context that each of us, adults and children, has differing opinions, and yours is one among many. Then guide the conversation away from your own opinion and allow participants to reflect on their own thoughts.
