From wherever you’re reading this on this Easter Sunday, I just wanted to take a moment to wish a Happy Easter to all of our readers. There will be no more posts today. We’ll get back to delivering interesting local news to you on Monday.
In this video (it’s going viral with 300,000+ views) below, more than 2,000 people from the Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, gathered at Discovery Green in the heart of Houston to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus through dance. The Baptist Press wrote about the video this link. This video reminds me of one of the most popular dancing videos on YouTube (and one of my faves) from Matt Harding.
The parishioners gathered to ‘Dance Your Shoes Off!’ The purpose of Dance Your Shoes Off! was to proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ in a powerful and celebratory way. Each participant left a new pair of shoes on the field for those in need and these shoes will be given to local mission agencies, including Star of Hope and to individuals all across the world through through their mission partners and mission trips.
