    This chapter looks at the use of comedic elements in external churchcommunication and reactions to this use. The main example is a tweet from theChurch of Sweden. Different possible functions of comedy in church communicationare discussed. The most fundamental function of religious comedy is theestablishment of a sense of community among the group who understand the joke.Some religious comedy clearly requires religious competence. One major reason forresistance to religious comedy from some Christian circles is that jokes that are tooaccessible to the general public fail to serve this purpose of creating community anddrawing a boundary between «us» and «them».
