Dare to Dance Sermon Series

Easter Season Worship Series: Dare to Dance Again

 “Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” — Psalm 30:5b

The Bible is chock full of stories about God’s people who have moved from fear and sorrow to joy and hope.  From Moses and the Hebrew people who celebrated deliverance from slavery in Egypt to the grieving disciples who finally realized that their beloved friend and teacher — their Lord — is risen from the dead, we are reminded that joy does indeed return to our lives. 

The resurrection of Jesus invites us to trust that when we are spiritually depleted, God will lead us to the dance hall of joy where we can dance the dances of freedom, hope, justice and love.  Thanks be to God that we do not dance alone!  Our partner is the resurrected Christ, and the dance hall is full of people whose mutual joy bubbles over in anticipation of new life that is ours as we make our way to the Promised Land.  Our joy moves us to proclaim to friends and neighbors near and far that “Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!”

Come and dance with us this Easter Season!  Rediscover the joy of resurrection and dare to dance again!
