Dancing With God

Posted at 26 September, at 17 : 04 PM Print

Wouldn’t it be great if you were so in love with God that you had to sing – and even dance? This program talks about doing just that!

Fr. Mike interviews John West of The Valyermo Dancers, a group dedicated to prayer dancing. They discuss the times in the Bible, especially with King David, when dancing is mentioned.  John sees dancing as prayer reclaiming something that is legitimately ours. Perhaps Puritanism stifled this desire. He sees it in light of the Incarnation.

Fr. Mike relates his experience at a Mass in Ghana where dancing is a normal part of the entrance and offertory procession. Quite an experience!
Fr. Mike and John spend some time discussing dance and worship as freeing oneself to be in the moment with God.

You won’t want to miss this exciting interview with excerpts of The Valyermo Dancers.
