Big Idea: If we think we have to get it all together before we show up to pray, we are missing the point. Anne Lamont says that possibly the best conditions under which we pray are when we are bitter or insane or broken. The Psalmists took that chance. They used language speaking to and with God, that relied, against all odds, on a cry of "help!" in order to spark our own healing relationship with God.

Big Idea: People who live with gratitude are known to be able to live whole-heartedly. Not only in our prime years, but in our declining ones, gratitude prepares us for letting go. Gratitude and generosity - two virtues that acknowledge we are not all strength and independence, but also (and very basically) weakness and dependency - prepare us for better adjustment in situations of loss.

Big Idea: It's almost impossible for us to grasp the power and scope of what Jesus has done for us. Over two millenia, Christians have struggled to understand and then explain what the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus means. The good news--the "Gospel"--hardly makes sense. It seems like a lie, and yet those who grasp the amazing paradox of life from death are able to do and accomplish extra-ordinary things, fulfilling the destiny God has called humanity for.

Big Idea: As Easter people we celebrate the Spirit that continues to give life and breath to dry bones. We dare to dance in the face of fear, in the face of cynicism, in the face of despair. We dare to dance as long as we live, for we, like the early Christians, are the recipients of the Spirit of God which keeps inviting us to the dance floor.

Big Idea: We know the hope we have been called to, but the intervening time is tricky. What dance steps could we be practicing now, when the particulars about the end of the dance are not yet clear? In any case, dancing, clapping, moving with purpose and yet with abandon, is still called for.

Big Idea: The Holy Spirit finds a way, even in unlikely and seemingly isolated spaces and places, and even among people we might fear or despise. When we don't see it, we miss out. When we do see it, we can't help rejoicing and singing and dancing our praises to God.

Big Idea: How has the testimony of people in our lives and through the generations guided our steps into dances of praise at the good news that we are loved and blessed? What transformation is possible as we abide in God and 'find our groove' with the new steps of praise together?

Big Idea: In contrast to some who say that the only way to live is to strive for onesself, or to put our own tribe first, the Jesus way of love -- in truth and in action-- is to lay down our lives for each other. That's the distinctively Christian way of dancing. On this Earth Day, they will know we are Christians by our love.

Duration: 19 mins 52 secs
Big Idea: The gospel of resurrection means that we have to understand our own lives in an entirely new way. We have to learn--and to dare--how to dance again in the new creation. Lives are lived and love is loved in the new dance of resurrection.
