Sermon - Easter Sunday
As I said before, Easter Sunday was a blast. One of the several highlights was a great example of liturgical dancing. Matthew first played through "Jesus Christ is Risen Today" with the organ and everyone singing. Then the bass player and the drummer and the choir came in and sang it again, but this time we did a simple 8-count dance with it. Meghan had showed everyone ahead of time and we simply danced in this fashion down the aisle, around the sides, and then back up again. It worked perfectly (or as perfectly as any whole-congregation dance is ever going to work)! I put about 45 seconds of the dance in the video to give you a sense of what it looked like. Not the best angle, but you can see that people were enjoying themselves and really being joyful, which was the point!
