What We Should Do

Every once in a while I encounter something I think THE CHURCH should be doing. Most of the time, it's not THE CHURCH doing it. When I first watched "Extreme Makeover, Home Edition" I immediately said, as I was crying, "This is what THE CHURCH should be doing!" When heard about Ashton Kutcher, Twitter, and the UN Foundation's Nothing but Net Campagin raising funds for the purchase and distribution of mosquito nets to refugees in Africa, I said, "Why isn't THE CHURCH doing this?"

Today I saw this video. And I asked the question again. What do you think?

I don't dance.

Maybe you should:

"There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good." ~Edwin Denby

"I would believe only in a God that knows how to dance." ~Friedrich Nietzsche

"Never trust spiritual leader who cannot dance." ~Mr. Miyagi, The Next Karate Kid, 1994

"Dancing faces you towards Heaven, whichever direction you turn." ~Sweetpea Tyler (???)

"I do not know what the spirit of a philosopher could more wish to be than a good dancer. For the dance is his ideal." ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

"Dance is the hidden language of the soul." ~Martha Graham

Well yeah, but consider your sources. Two have conflicts of interest. One is a fictional character. One is a vegetable. Another is a philosopher, of all things.

"Yet such is the madness of the folly of men that ... they prefer to indulge in wanton dancing...." --John Calvin
