Synopsis: "An exploration of ecumenical silliness, OMG! LOL! reveals the sacred truth that laughter is a common language for people of all faiths. While organizing a community interfaith Thanksgiving event, a pastor is surprised to learn that people of all religious traditions laugh in the same language. He explores the connections between faith and laughter, examining his own holy heritage in dialogue with followers of other faiths. His discoveries culminate on Interfaith Laughter Night, with an open mike that encourages participants of all the faiths gathered to laugh with each other…and at themselves. Come along on a journey of ecumenical silliness! "
