the greatest christian video & dance

I’ve shared this before but it’s too good not to share at least yearly. After seeing it again for the 500th time, I am convinced this is the GREATEST christian video & dance. Truth be told, they got some moves but at the same time, it’s eerie but wonderful. Strange but enticing. Awkward but fluid.

Watch…and wait…for the solo dance. It’s priceless.

  2. Becka (BAM) says:

    wow – I especially like the twirls they do with their arms in the air.

  3. Huh? says:

    What in the world is this?

    When was this? I hope this wasn’t anything in the past 10 years.

  4. Assentia says:

    Ew. Pass the barfbag.

    Seriously, those people should get themselves a career and save their church the embarrassment.

  5. DK says:

    What are you people laughing about! The audience loved it and that’s what matters.

  6. blake says:

    what a ripoff.

    completely stole those dance moves from vanilla ice.

    only vanilla can pull those moves off. to the extreme!

  7. Linda says:

    @DK: I think you meant if God loved it, then that’s all that matters 🙂 But if He got as creeped out as I did, then i don’t know

    They’re quite synchronized though, so they got that going for them…

  8. Chris says:

    This is a group called The Way International (cult? maybe from their lit), from a concert done in March 2007 http://www.theway.org/Current/M07/Mar07Hi.html

    There are several other songs posted on that link, but if it’s creep factor you’re looking for, then ‘He’s Our Promised Seed’ is the way to go! http://www.theway.org/Current/M07/Mar07Hi2.html

    This series of videos gives me great hope for longevity as an almost-50 worship band member!!

  9. chad m says:

    if i could only pull that off at a youth event i might win “youth pastor of the year,” if that existed of course! i was wondering why the dude didn’t have a mic to hold until i saw the solo dance…

    look our Napoleon Dynomite…

  10. LT says:

    geez eugene…i never in my wildest dreams expected that performance! hilarious!!! i think quest needs to revamp their moves…or maybe the speaking pastor should do a solo interpretive dance every sunday. please don’t forget to moonwalk tho!

  11. GN says:

    I can’t stop watching this. I’m hypnotized! We’ve gotta do this in church, PE. We could pull it off, I promise! I’d work super hard just for you. Hahahaha…

  12. Sarah H says:

    We’ll be back for Christmas and we’ll be at Quest on the 21st. Do you think you’ll have a performance like that ready?

  13. Melissa says:

    What are you saying? I’m a professional dancer. I could totally pull that off!

    (not that I EVER would!)

  14. eugenecho says:

    @sarah h: we’ll work on it. going to get capt ralph and your mom-in-law involved in that dance.

    @melissa: hey, i have confidence in you. it’s the chism i have doubts about.

  15. leochen says:

    gag! I couldn’t finish watching it!

  16. LG says:

    I just threw up in my mouth a little…but I still have one question…is that guy single???

  17. I don’t get it. Why all the hate? That was awesome! I’m practicing the moves as we speak. That’s gotta be the coolest dance since this one.

    You guys wouldn’t know cool if it bit you in the foot.

    Grace and Peace,
    Raffi

  18. Tony says:

    That was strangely both absolutely amazing and extremely embarrassing at the same time… don’t hate PE! That man was gettin down! For God! Or something.

  19. I am with those who say, “Wow, that’s awful” and also with those who say “If it’s sincere, that’s what matters.” Completely reminds me of the Celebrant Singers (which we ridiculed as the “Celibate Singes” at my Christian college). Have a great day, Eugene and Minhee!

  20. Jim Chen says:

    Hahahaha, just goes to show that GOD is funny.

  21. Rachael Darden says:

    PE!

    Classic! Beautiful! I love this.

    But wait, there’s more. If it’s amazing Christian worship / dancefest you’re looking for, then this is for you:

    It’s not as choreographed, but oh man, the song is priceless.

    And remember: Jesus will zap you anyway he can. Zap. (You’ll understand once you watch the video.

  22. eugenecho says:

    @rachel: yes, i’ve seen that one. that one is nice too but the one featured on this blog entry is from 2007.

  23. Joel says:

    Ha wow, this is…amazing. In a very odd way.
    My favorite part is the deacon drummer in the back. He looks so excited to be there!
    Also, there is some debate as to whether that SonSeed video (that rachael posted) is legit or not amongst the internet.

  24. Randall says:

    …from 2007?

    Excuse me, I believe my jaw just fell into the basement.

  25. katie says:

    funny that all of their songs are about Christ…even though they don’t believe that He is God.

    I want to know how old the blonde girl is…and how they possibly convinced her to be a part of this concert or wear those clothes.

  26. gregwheeler says:

    Holy crap. I just hope that, looking back, those people are suitably embarrassed.

  27. Andy says:

    Lawrence Welk meets The 700 Club?

  28. Holy cow! hahaha. That’s too funny!

  29. Melanie says:

    That did sort of remind me of when I used to watch Lawrence Welk with my Gram.
    They worked really hard – it was cute! (OK, but I don’t have speakers on my computer…)

  30. […] thou shalt not dance…like this I really don’t know what to say.  But you have to watch this video of what I can only call “Thou Shalt Not […] […]

  31. jHong says:

    uhhh i just want to say, for the record, that is NOT what the ‘britney’ mic is for. let’s not get any big ideas.

    and let’s not start any more rap battles either. i felt i had to repent for DEVASTATING my pastor so hardcore the last time. have you recovered yet? i’ve been interceding on your behalf.
    😀

  32. Rebecca says:

    See, we had this discussion as a worship advisory council, when we were talking about how our worship should reflect the Quest vision to be a multiethnic church. But we decided that until we have someone with actual dance moves (not hating on George and Mattsy, but let’s be reasonable) we would stick with the talents that God had given us. Melissa might be able to pull it off, but I dunno about the rest of us.

  33. Rachael says:

    Okay, you win: 2007! Wow.

  34. Bethany says:

    @LG: YES, he is single.

  35. john says:

    i’ve seen this before and every time i watch it i’m left completely speechless…

    @ Rachael: i sort of like the vintage/retro Jesus thing.

    ha~

  36. janowen says:

    just to make you feel a little bit better, The Way International is really a cult I think. While they believe in Jesus, they don’t believe he is the Son of God, or God in any way…….

    Just fyi.

  37. tygersounds says:

    That Joel Osteen can really cut the rug.

  38. laurel says:

    the ___ is the key? i can’t understand what they are saying…

  39. The Chiz says:

    I don’t know PE, I feel a Paradigm Shift coming on!!!! We still have a Flag Dance fund in the budget, right?

  40. […] and busy that I needed to watch this video below again to get me on track.  Many of you expressed your appreciation for the video last […]

  41. OMG – please tell me this was on SNL and not really performed in a church somewhere!

    Make sure to fast forward to 1:50 for the “spiritual climax.” Nothing says spiritual enlightenment like really bad popping & locking…and singing…and outfits…

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

"He must become greater; I must become less." - John 3:30 We have to remind ourselves of this truth every day lest we forget:

Our greatest calling as followers of Christ is to be faithful. Not spectacular. Not glamorous. Not popular. Not relevant.

Be faithful.

PS: Also, it helps to get some Vitamin D especially if you live in the rainy Northwest Thank you, Brooklyn, for the reminder. Umm, @jlin7 is a Christian but he wasn't very Christlike with me on the basketball court. He muscled me into the paint, dunked on me, mentioned my momma, and then said, "Stick with preaching." Just kidding. Kind of.

If you haven't heard, Jeremy Lin is donating his one games wages (approximately $140,000) and an additional $100 for every 3 pointer made to support Girls' Empowerment and Education through @onedayswages. That game is this Friday vs the Boston Celtics!

Join his campaign as he's inviting his fans to donate just $7. - http://onedayswages.org/jlin

Did you know that 32 million girls of lower secondary school age are not enrolled in school.

Did you know that every year of secondary school increases a girl’s future earning power by 20 percent.

Did you know that if all girls in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and West Asia had a secondary education, child marriage would fall by 64 percent.

We can't change the entire world but we can impact the lives of one, few, and in some cases...many.

#jeremylin #jlin #linsanity #onedayswages Don't be held captive to either praise or criticism.

Know who you are.
Know what you're about.
Know WHO you serve.

The answer to who you serve makes all the difference... It's the day after International Women's Day - and it's still important to celebrate the contribution of women in our lives, society, and world. As we honor women all around the world, I'm also reminded of how women and children are those who are most deeply impacted by injustice - especially poverty.

Sadly, I have witnessed this reality in too many places. ​In 2012, I traveled to a remote area in Eastern Kenya as part of a @onedayswages response to a famine that struck the Horn of Africa region. This famine impacted nearly 13 million people and according to some sources, took the lives of about 250,000 people. During my trip there, I had the chance of meeting many people but the person that still remains in my memory was a Muslim woman named Sahara.

She was so hospitable in inviting us to her small and temporary home. During our conversation, I learned that ​Sahara traveled 300 kilometers (a little under 200 miles) – some by cart and some by foot – as they sought to escape the worst drought that has impacted East Africa (Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia) in the past 60 years.

This is not a misprint.
200.

She traveled about 200 miles on cart and foot. ​And all along, she was ill. If you look closely ​at the photo, you might notice the large lump in her throat - likely a large cancerous tumor.​ She did not travel alone. She traveled with her husband who I was not able to meet because he was staying with one of his five other wives in this polygamist community.  She did not travel alone. She also traveled with her six children – the youngest being about 1 and the oldest being around 8. She had just given birth to her sixth child when they began her journey. Her youngest was severely malnourished when they arrived to this new settlement in a town called Benane. 
Sahara and her children all survived this journey. They survived because she persisted. 
In honor of Sahara...and so many other women who keep...keeping on.
