No Matter Where You Are On Life's Journey, You Are Welcome Here.

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

This Sunday the Hebrew lesson and Gospel lesson both talk about dancing. So, the movie we are using at Virginia-Highland Church as part of our summer sermon series Faith & Film is “Footloose.” Frankly, I had never seen the movie until I had to write the sermon. I can’t believe how young Kevin Bacon looked. The fashion, the stars, and the values all seemed ancient. It was a shock to my system when I realized that the movie came out a dozen years after I danced at my own senior prom. Dang. Kevin Bacon isn’t the only one who has aged …

In Sunday’s sermon, one of the things I want to ask is, “Where did our dance go?” Did age take it from us? How did we become so reserved, constrained, inhibited, tired? Okay, being tired might be a function of age, but we don’t have to let time rob us of our passion, enthusiasm, and exuberance.

If you are in Atlanta on Sunday I hope you will join us at Virginia-Highland Church and recover the dance of your life. I think the scriptures offer us a clue about how we lost it and, perhaps, how we can find it again.

Although it has been attributed to a wide variety of people, and we all have heard it a thousand times, I want to invite you, as you read each of the following lines, to think of how you might take this advice THIS weekend:

Dance Like
