Sometimes, my sense of humor gets me noticed in ways I'd rather not get noticed.
There I was, politely sitting toward the front of the sanctuary, listening to RadBrad sermonize about why some folks are less-than-eager to openly talk about their faith. One reason he mentioned is that there is a fear of a negative response from the people we talk to.
To give us some perspective on how relatively-minor anyone's negative response would be compared to what, say, the Apostle Paul went through, RadBrad asked:
"Have any of you ever been stoned?"
Believe it or not, I was the only person who laughed out loud at that.
A merry heart worketh like medicine, my foot.
