The Importance of Not Being Earnest

The definition of earnest: seriousness, industriousness, ardent and zealous in pursuit of a goal. To which I might add that the earnest seem to evince a decided unwillingness to goof off, enjoy themselves, or have a mighty giggle every now and then.

Maybe it's just me (which is of course the classic female cop-out, right?) but doesn't it seem like all of us (especially those of us who make our livings in the church) are way too serious these days? What every happened to the all-out goof-off, mental health, do-whatever-I-want-with-whomever-I want day?

Here's my plan for the revitalization of the church: for every one business meeting we are forced to suffer through for the good of the "body," we are required to have two fellowship events where no "body" is asked to give, perform, speak, or cook. All that's required is to show up with a light spirit - and have fun. Take-out pizza and beer optional, but highly recommended!
