Nothing scheduled yet for December or January. :( We need a location where we can do this on a regular basis. If you know of one, please contact me.
Let me introduce you to Dance and Evensong. It’s designed to provide a new opportunity for dance for Christian young people, while at the same time be an outreach to believers and barely-believers. The basic idea is that on a Sunday evening we will have a dance (this will hopefully attract a good number of young people), then pizza (who doesn’t like that?), and then a special service called Evensong. Evensong is an Anglican service sometimes called it’s crown jewel. It’s beautiful, not too long, and the liturgy and prayers are all biblically-focused. I’ve already been practicing with a small choir to help lead in singing.
Date: Sunday, Nov 6
Cost: Free. If you can spring $5/person for pizza, it would be helpful, but not required. Come if you’re poor; pay if you’re rich.
Dance Attendees: The dancing is focused for junior high, high school, and college. Each should dance with their age-appropriate partner. No dates required; I will match up those who come as singles (which I hope will be a considerable number).
Evensong attendees: All ages. Families come with all children; everyone needs to hear the gospel. Adults please join in.
Masks: None required.
Dances will be the normal ones we do: Swing, Tango, Foxtrot, Waltz, and English Country. Yes, “Strip the Willow” should make it’s normal appearance!
Right now we only have one meeting at DIU/ILC scheduled. If it turns out well, we might be able to schedule more.
Invite as many friends as you think are interested. A big idea for DAE is to attract unbelievers and barely-believers so they can hear the gospel. It will not be high-intensity manipulation, just a simple exposition of Scripture and a gospel presentation of what Christ has promised to all who believe on Him.
