A Lesson in Improv + Dependent Faith with Karen Cassady
Do you love to laugh? I mean, really, who doesn’t? While we all might find humour in different places, the art of comedy and the gift of laughter truly do make this world a better place. So, why wouldn’t we use this gift to build God’s kingdom? Whether you are looking for how to tell better jokes or you want to use the tools from the art of comedy while discipling others or telling others about Jesus, there is something here for you with my guest, improv comedian Karen Cassady.
Karen answers questions like...
Why does God’s kingdom need comedians? (I really think it does!)
Where would you draw the connection between faith and comedy?
How do you find yourself depending on God through this profession?
There are many skills that an improv comedian has that could play a role in our kingdom building. Could you give us some tips on each one?
