“What does clowning have to do with the priesthood?” For me it has everything to do with it. Each time that I preach or share my story I’m pulling from my life experience, I’m pulling from scripture and putting it all together to see life in a different way. We are each challenged to reflect on the world around us, and as a community committed to bringing renewal and reconciliation. Sometimes we just need to see things a bit differently. Preaching and clowning in some ways are a lot alike, as we draw on the humor and tragedies of life to find God present and to make God known to others. Some people have the gift to do it with words others have the gift to do it with actions. Either way, we have a story to share.
