You're Allowed to Laugh in Church

I have a new post up at the UCC's New Sacred blog titled You're Allowed to Laugh in Church:

It started when I had an idea for our sign that would acknowledge the season and make light of how a lot of grocery stores, restaurants, and coffeehouses serve “pumpkin spice” flavored drinks and confections this time of year.

There it is to the left: “Now Serving Pumpkin Spice Communion.” It’s a churchy spin on the autumn flavor craze, baked in with a slight commentary on how excessive and absurd said craze can get.

And yes, it’s a joke.
