Beyond the Barriers of Labels

For these dancers, dance is their professional work and belief in Christ is their confession of faith. They are involved in the mainstream culture of dance and are called to live out their faith with Christian liberty while being the salt and light to the community in which they are called. These dancers, teachers, choreographers recognize the wholeness of the Lordship of Jesus Christ and feel a great affection to display the marvelous beauty and truth of our Creator and Lord in creative offerings that serve our world in various ways, not just devotional expressions or creative evangelism.

Jesus took a towel to wash the disciples feet. It was not a "Christian" towel. The towel was not sacred or holy or religious by any means. The towel was an ordinary towel in the hands of an extraordinary Savior. The towel was there as an instrument of service to other people. The towel could be offered to help in "washing the feet of others". The towel was an extension and expression of the grace, the beauty, the truth, the cleansing and healing offered by the Master who humbled himself to be a servant to those he loved. The Master did this an an example to those who would follow Him, that they too would take their towels of servitude and "go into the world" and wash the feet of of soiled and broken humanity.

Christian dancers, Christians that are dancers, dancers that are Christians - Is the term and label so important? What is of true importance is that we are taking up the dancing towels of our lives and washing the feet of humanity as we walk in the path of service we have been given by grace. Whether you dance in the church, on the mission field or on the Broadway stage, may all be done to the glory of God with passion and conviction and a clear understanding of our roles as servants in this world given precious gifts whereby we honor God and bless our world.
