I am going all out in an attempt to give my class visual reminders of the message of Ecclesiastes. Previously I have used a glass of water and an open pair of cupped hands to convey keys to happiness and contentment. This week I implored them to dance their way through life. Outwardly or inwardly, openly or secretly it seems that dancing can be an expression of gratitude to God for all he has given us.
As I began to paraphrase Ecclesiastes chapter 3 into some kind of dance choreography, a dance used during intermissions at sporting events I have attended came to mind.
Yield to the God of heaven. He has determined a time and a season for everything.
In My heart he has planted eternity that I may seek him.
Though the Certainty of death has caused many to see life as vanity,
And Around me lies injustice and wickedness; I will give my cares to God and dance!
Y – M – C – A! Y – M – C – A! Can hear the music playing?
