April Fools (was yesterday)

In case you didn't catch it, my post yesterday about preaching being outlawed in California was a joke. Preaching is still as legal as ever in the US.

To tie this in to preaching a bit, preachers need to have more fun. There, I said it. Preachers have gotten this reputation for being boring, stuffy, and self-righteous. Think of Reverend Lovejoy from "The Simpsons" he's all of those things and more.

Preaching doesn't have to be the domain of the boring scholar. We can have fun and connect with people through humor while maintaining our scholarship and focus on the Word. The two are not mutually exclusive.
