I came across a quote that says — it’s an old Chinese proverb and it says ‘one may judge a king by the state of dancing during his reign.’ And actually that quote sounds a lot like one of our dance minister’s favorite scriptures: Ecclesiastes 3 :4. There is a time to mourn and a time to dance. Psalm 30:11 says ‘you have turned for me my mourning into dancing. That tells me that no matter what might be going on in the world today or even in our individual lives, it is time to dance, and we have to remember that as dance ministers: that it’s time to dance.
”Let CNN and the local news tell the sad story. Let us tell the good news and the happy part of life, the joyous part of life, the danceable part of life. That it is time to dance and it really is true. It doesn’t matter what is going on in despair or what’s going on in the news or with the economy. God is still on the throne.
