Easter video: “Dance Your Shoes Off”

April 10, 2015

I found this via Ann Voskamp’s 2011 blog archives.  What fun!

Here are a few of the lyrics.  Great words.  May it be true of us today!

This is a celebration…We’re people of His Kingdom.  His resurrection is our freedom, for every heart, every tongue and every tribe. …

We will rise up. He’s alive, He’s alive inside us, and we will rise up.  We claim the victory He won on Calvary. Celebrate the King of Glory, so rise up, people of the Lord rise up. … We carry the love that has redeemed us. … We will dance for the One who shines brighter than the sun.

May our Easter faith be marked by this kind of contagious and visible JOY!

Second Baptist Church Houston | More than 2,000 people from Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas, gathered at Discovery Green in the heart of Houston to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The purpose of Dance Your Shoes Off! was to proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ in a powerful and celebratory way. Most importantly, each participant left a new pair of shoes on the field for those in need. These shoes will be given to local mission agencies, including Star of Hope, individuals all across the world through our mission partners and mission trips.

NOTE: This event was inspired by our fellow believers in Budapest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5dSIL….

“Easter the Epic” – A montage of Easter imagery in classic movies. Very Cool!

April 9, 2015

I was browsing through archives of Trevin Wax’s blog earlier this week, looking for an Easter prayer he’d posted a few years ago.  In doing so, I came across an Easter post from 2008: Easter the Epic – a short (7 min) YouTube video by Matthew Miller which Trevin posted.  I really enjoyed it!

Here’s what Trevin wrote and posted:

Matthew Miller has put together a terrific compilation of movie scenes from many epic movies, including Gladiator, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, The Shawshank Redemption, and Braveheart, showing how the theme of death and resurrection inherent in each film points to the greatest Story ever told. Watch it here. Well done, Matthew.
