Second Fridays at CCS got off to a great start last Friday. This fall Second Fridays will focus on faith and the arts, and last Friday the room was full of people eager to discuss the relationship between humour and faith. Lesley Harrison and Scott Douglas offered reflections that were both funny and faithful.
