Daily Practice: Everyone Needs Joy!

Tony Campolo is an American sociologist, pastor, author, public speaker and former spiritual advisor to U.S. President Bill Clinton. In the below video, he shares an interesting story from a time when he was in Honolulu and somehow found himself throwing a birthday party for prostitutes. Everyone deserves a celebration in the church of Jesus Christ!

Thoughts to Consider

  • What evidence of God’s transformation in your life (perhaps through practicing spiritual disciplines) do you have to give thanks for and celebrate?
  • Looking ahead, what opportunities do you have to laugh, sing, shout, dance, etc.? Can you make some opportunities?
  • Looking ahead, what opportunities do you have to “relax and enjoy the good things of the earth” (Richard Foster)? Can you make some opportunities?
  • Organize a creative activity with family or friends.
  • Arrange to get together with some friends purely for relaxation and pleasure.
  • What events in the lives of family or friends could you be celebrating?
