Humor floods our lives. We use it to entertain, to reduce stress and promote health, to smooth social interactions (or to make people bristle), to sell products of all kinds, to persuade about ideas, and much more. Humor is an important and often overlooked part of the spiritual life. Humor skills can be learned; In an accessible and funny way, Laughing Pilgrims Humor and the Spiritual Journey aims to teach readers effective skills for interpreting and creating humor in their daily lives. Whether it is a "spiritual gift" or "spiritual discipline" humor (and its distortions) can powerfully reveal and shape our spiritual development. Skillful and purposeful use of humor can deepen our spiritual maturity in each of these areas. Laughing Pilgrims will help readers move steadily toward wisdom and great joy. ^www.laughingpilgrims.com ^

Howard R Macy

Howard R. Macy (Ph.D. Harvard University, M.A. Earlham School of Religion, B.A. George Fox University) is Professor Emeritus of Religion and Biblical Studies at George Fox University, Oregon.

"I was a high school junior when I chose to pursue being in full-time Christian service rather than being a band director. I had no idea, of course, of the twists and turns of the path that followed. My eager discovery of the Old Testament in seminary and my love of teaching eventually led me to university work, which I have enjoyed now for over 20 years. Along the way, I've also served as youth and Christian education worker and as a pastor. As a Friends minister, I still see my teaching as a way of supporting the work of the church. My love of both the Psalms and the Prophets blends well with a strong secondary interest in Christian spirituality, a subject that I get to teach in a variety of ways at George Fox. These subjects also support my work in wo rship, both in teaching and weekly planning activities. My current research and writing is about humor and the spiritual journey. It explores how we experience and use humor and how that relates to Christian maturity. It also explores how to recognize and interpret humor in the Bible. I also enjoy sports (basketball, bicycling, etc.), music (brass ensemble, choir, etc.), photography and going to the Oregon coast as often as possible."
