Prophetic Thursday is where I peer down the pike and try to give you a heads up on what to expect within Christianity in the near and not so near future. To see the two most recent posts in this series, click Here and Here.
Biblical Dance Moves
I don’t have them moves like Jagger, mostly because I have no idea what that means. But if things go the way that I expect them to, I may one day have them moves like Jonah. Let me explain.
While I don’t know anything about dancing, I do know a few things about creativity. And one thing I know about creativity is that it is extremely difficult coming up with new ideas. This is probably true for dance moves as well.
It is only a matter of time before dancers take a look at the Bible and come up with moves based on some of the people they read about there. Here are a few dance moves we will probably be seeing soon:
1. The Jonah. This is where you jump into a squat on the dance floor (like you have been thrown overboard into the water), hold the squat for three seconds (like you are in the whale’s belly for three days), and then jump up and flop back onto the floor (like you have been vomited up onto dry land). It will not be a popular dance.
2. The Noah. Just round-up everyone (like they are animals) onto the middle of the dance floor (like it’s the ark) and have everyone bob up and down (like they are floating on quickly rising water). Afterward act like you are sacrificing some of the “animals.” Again, not popular.
3. The Lot’s Wife. Walk across the dance floor at a rapid pace looking frantic and scared. Stop, look back, and then crumble to the floor as though you have been turned into salt. Will this dance be popular? Um…no.
4. The Jeremiah. Otherwise known as “The Weeping Prophet.” Just stand in the middle of the dance floor and cry. Popular only for emotional people after a bad break-up.
5. The Zacchaeus. This is where you push through a crowd of people, climb up onto a table or chair, act like you are looking for someone, then hop off the chair before going home and eating with family and friends. Again, not very popular.
So….this will probably never happen. And that is a good thing. We should learn from the Biblical characters about how to best follow and honor God, not waste time making up dance moves about them.
But if it ever does happen, remember that you heard it here first.
What other some other possible Biblical dance moves?
