About "The Mother of All Laughter"
Terry Lindvall agrees with C.S. Lewis' assessment that "there is too much solemnity among the saints." Lindvall seeks to offer a remedy to this sentiment in "The Mother of All Laughter. Sarah was the mother of laughter--the promised son Isaac, literally meaning laughter. "The Mother of All Laughter uses the story of Sarah from Genesis to teach Christians today about the nature of laughter and humor in a life of faith. Laughter binds the saints of old, both ancient Jewish and early Christian, with the people of God's promise today. Laughter is to be engaged in fully and celebrated often as we reflect the personality of our creator when enjoying life, each other, and the communal nature of laughter.
