Strictly no dancing?

Now here’s a subject that I’m totally out of my depth on — dancing. I’m only tackling this subject because I was given a questionnaire by a dance student who was doing a dissertation on dancing in worship.

Music Richard Simpkin

The questions were about ‘the appropriateness of dancing within the church and whether it is a suitable form of corporate worship’. Dancing in the Bible is nearly always linked with music, which is why I thought it appropriate to include it in this column. Once I’d taken my head out of the sand and bravely filled in my questionnaire, I was grateful to the student for coaxing me out of my comfort zone.
