How is this like church?

Matt Harding
Watch this video. It's only four and a half minutes, and really fun.

(If the image is jerky, turning off HD should help. Move your cursor to the right of the video and the blue letters that say "HD is on" will appear. Click it to turn off.)

After watching, tell me in what ways do you think this is like church?

(For more on Matt Harding and his dance check this out.)

Ohhh, this brought tears and a pounding heart! Thanks for linking to it.

This is the Church and the Some Day that I thought of:

"Robust men and women in their prime, and yes, graybeards and little children. Let them praise the name of God— it's the only Name worth praising. His radiance exceeds anything in earth and sky;
he's built a monument -
his very own people!

Praise from all who love God! Israel's children, intimate friends of God.
Ps. 148:12-14

This is like the Church Future. No more night, no more pain, no more sin, never dying again. We will dance...

Today is not that day. But the day is coming...

To me it is the idea of being the church wherever you are and with everyone. Matt dances where he is, with whoever will dance with him. He doesn't wear special dance shoes or only dance in dance halls.

The good news is for everyone, in all nations. And it brings joy! So, be the good news wherever you are.

I see this as the uncontainable joy of the redeemed of the earth. How can we keep our hands in our pockets and our feet stuck to the floor when we grasp the height, depth, width, length and breadth of our redemption and salvation?

Time ta busta move!
