Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

I LOVE this!


And yes, I would "allow" it at a church where I was rector.

I mean, why would you possibly want to stifle that much joy?

I think Jesus would be well pleased.

Allow it? It should be compulsory!!!!

Indeed, DP. Indeed.

Is there a line between joy and showing-off? I actually would have allowed it as the recessional,but would not have wanted the challenge of moving from that procession to the more solemn tone of the marriage rite.

Alas!!! You won't find that much rhythm in all the Chathams.

If that was the wedding, I want to go to the reception. That's a parteeeeeee.

And I think you would move a little more than their minister did... yes? (I know I would!!!)

Anyone know the tune or artist? It's good and catchy.

Elizabeth Kaeton said...

Fr.Daniel Weir. I know. But, you know, the track record of the church in emphasizing the "solemnity" of marriage is not so good. Maybe if more people danced to the aisle . . .??????

Thanks, Elizabeth. What fun!

Caminante, the song is Forever -

I'm fine with the dancing.

I didn't like the choice of music. I'm no fan of hypersexualized secular music at weddings. Weddings are, after all, an act of worship.

But there are hyms one can dance to. And if you can't find one, write another.

Indeed, if as you say, "more people danced down the aisle" there wouldn't be so many videos of still hungover participants passing out of worse, during the service.

I am amazed that all these straight guys were willing to boogie and got their groove on, with one exception. Yes, there is always one with no sense of rhythm.

Joy, like love, is rare enough that it should be welcomed, embraced, and celebrated.

Wherever that is.

Doorman-Priest said...

Ah but the one with no sense of rhythm makes it for me because he was willing to throw himself into it regardless.
