This week, Christian comedian John Crist performed at the Taft Theatre in downtown Cincinnati. Many folks who attend churches in the Tri-state went to see him. It was a hilarious performance with jokes that entertained and delighted. But Crist got serious for a moment and said this to the audience:
"Christians, can we not be so uptight? Read the end of the book. We already won."
That's how Crist justifies finding humor in everything: As Christians we should feel safe knowing the finality of our physical lives will be met with an eternity in Heaven. What a great comfort!
