Holy Humor Sunday
Scripture: John 20:19-31
Sermon: “Holy Humor”
Preacher: Rev. Rushan Sinnaduray

On this Sunday after Easter, we celebrate Holy Humor Sunday, also known as Bright Sunday. The custom of Holy Humor Sunday is rooted in the musings of early church theologians (like Augustine, Gregory of Nyssa, and John Chrysostom) that God played a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead. “Risus paschalis” (the Easter laugh), the early theologians called it.
