Have you dreamed of going on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land? Come dance your way through the sacred sites of Israel. With slides and images inviting you into a prayer of the imagination, whirl with David at the Western Wall, gesture Mary’s prayer in Nazareth, sway with the Babe in Bethlehem, embody the Beatitudes, step into the story of the sisters at Bethany, pray with Jesus through the Garden of Gethsemane, and rise to new life as we roll away the stone! All simple dances can be used in your home worship setting. (Michael Mangan will provide musical accompaniment.)
