Holy Joke?

Fred Buechner always has a fresh way of looking at spirituality. I have always liked to hear those who offer a different perspective.

Fred Buechner writes: 

"I suspect that Jesus spoke many of his parables as a kind of sad and holy joke and that that may be part of why he seemed reluctant to explain them, because if you have to explain a joke, you might as well save your breath".
