You don’t have to be a professional dancer to know the freedom of dancing... well, at least the freedom of dancing when no one is watching! Each of us has our own “groove.” What’s yours? Head-bopping? Hip swinging? Shuffle? Slide?

The Easter season is a time of “coming out of the tombs.” In a year like we’ve had in 2020-2021, the tombs of death, economic loss, grief and unrest are obvious.Yet some tombs we need to emerge from are of our own making and we ask ourselves, “what holds us back from claiming our freedom to really LIVE and to dance our dances fully?”

No matter what confines us, the Easter message is one that offers the courage for new starts.

Even though Easter comes and we are called to live as “Easter people” with no fear of death, this is not always an easy thing for us to do, especially in times of great anxiety. But sometimes we have to just let the dance take us... to allow God’s joy to invade our reality.

This is why we call this season “Dare to Dance Again.” Dare to dance, even in the midst of fear and suffering. Dare to dance an Easter dance of the promise of resurrection.
