The Funniest Thing that Ever Happened in My Small Group

Laughter is great medicine for the health of a group; the groups I’ve been involved in have laughed together a lot, most of the time at something I did or said. But I do remember one group meeting, more than 20 years ago. The group was a mix of mature (or at least long-time) followers of Jesus and several very new Christians.

I had asked the group a provocative question: “Since becoming a Christian, have you ever regretted your decision?”

One of the new Christians in the group passionately blurted out, “Hell no!”

A few jaws of the older Christ followers dropped, and then we all started laughing. It took several minutes before we could get back to the study.

How about you? What’s the funniest thing that has ever happened in your small group?
