The Rev. Susan Sparks will talk about her experiences as the only stand-up comic with a pulpit. She has been a lawyer, a comedian, and is currently the Senior Pastor of the Madison Avenue Baptist Church, the first woman pastor to occupy that pulpit in 160 years. She is also a cancer survivor.
In her work, Rev. Sparks connects the dots between health, humor, and happiness in an original way. Her most recent book is "Laughing Your Way to Grace- Reclaiming the Spiritual Power of Humor".
This lecture is part of the “Chautaugua at the Jersey Shore” lecture series presented in collaboration with The New Avalon Assembly.
