Every culture brings its own uniqueness to our world community. Churches are the same. Some churches are full of mystery and ritual and some are more free-flowing. Not to put all Black Churches in a box but generally they are known for energy, emotion and participation. People come to “have church”.
You know the saying, “When in Rome do like the Romans”. If you want to be like the “Romans” in the Black Church here are some moves by The Playmakers 1 to help you out:)
And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment. (2 Samuel 6:14)
You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever! (Psalm 30:11)
Yes, I know that things can get out of hand and people can do things just to draw attention to themselves. In the end God will decide on the genuineness of a person’s worship but at least it’s not boring!:)
