— Midweek Meditations: thoughts, inspiration and encouragement from ACF community members —
I have a book in our loo room called “10 Second sermons” by Milton Jones. Milton Jones is an English comedian known for his one-liners, having multiple grandfathers and his crazy hair. Search for him on YouTube to see his more mainstream comedy appearances (like this one).
As the title implies, the book has short funny comments on everyday church life. Looking through it again I found a few of my favourite lines…
Even though they are meant to be quick funny one-liners to read, they can still provoke thought and reflection. These one-liners and the skill of the observational comedian is to see general issues in the world and make a joke from them. Showing others that they are not the only ones with similar problems.
And as Milton closes “P.S. Words are not enough. Or pictures.”
