Today begins 31 Days of Books—an excerpt from one of my favorite books on faith each day in October.

Excerpt from Celebration of Discipline:
Celebration is a desperately needed grace for all those who are earnest about the Spiritual Disciplines.
It is an occupational hazard of devout folk to become stuffy bores. This should not be.
Of all people, we should be the most free, alive, interesting.
Celebration adds a note of gaiety, festivity, hilarity to our lives. After all, Jesus rejoiced so fully in life that he was accused of being a wine-bibber and a glutton. Many of us lead such sour lives that we cannot possibly be accused of such things.
. . . Joy begets joy. Laughter begets laughter. It is one of those few things in life that we multiply by giving.
– Richard Foster
