Happy New Year!

Co-worker: Whatcha doing for New Year's?

Me: Church.

Co-worker: Oh.

Me: Yeah. And my church is full of Caribbeans

Co-worker: I don't understand. What does it mean that your church is full of Caribbeans?

Other Co-workers: Yeah [confused faces abound]

Me: They totally know how to party.

Co-worker the First: Oh! So you're going to a party at your church. I thought you were going to church.

Me: I totally am going to church. And we're going to party.

Co-workers: Oh.

Me: Yup!

That's right, folks, you can go to church, worship God, hang out with God's, and it can totally be a party!  The Bible even says so:

Praise the Lord !
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens! 

Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness! 

Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp! 
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe! 

Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals! 

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord !
Praise the Lord !

Psalm 150 ESV
