Easter: We Will Rise Up

And now for something completely different . . .

Instead of exploring another topic of marriage and sexuality today, I want to share my joy at the coming Easter Sunday, which Christians specifically dedicate to celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:14 “And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” A few verses later, he asserts, “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead” (v. 20). I believe that with all of my mind, heart, and soul. Our faith is not in vain.

The following remains one of my favorite Christian videos ever. It was presented in 2000 by the Second Baptist Church in a public park in Houston, Texas. I’m hardly the first to share it, since it has been viewed over 1 million times on YouTube. But if you’ve watched it before, it’s worth another look. And if you haven’t seen it, please enjoy Dance Your Shoes Off.

Happy Easter!

Update, April 6: Thanks to Vickie for pointing out that Second Baptist did it again! This year, April 1, they had children perform to the song. Here’s that video:

    He is risen–He is risen indeed!

    BTW, this busts the long-standing myth that “Baptist’s can’t dance.” 😉 (being Baptist myself, I can get away with saying that). 🙂
