As I wrote last week, each Monday I’m highlighting a prayer practice that I find to be unique or inspirational (yet the post falls on a Tuesday night this week – it seems that there were not enough hours in the day yesterday!). In our study to become Daughters, we learned that prayer can take many forms – it can come from the lips, the hands, or the feet. Last week, we looked at a form of prayer that came from the hands. This week, we look to the feet!

Today’s post looks at the Liturgical Dance Ministry at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Olympia, Washington. Inspired in part by the description of King David dancing before the Ark of the Covenant in 1 Chronicles 15:29, this 25-year ministry “express prayer and praise to God, reaching for a deeper meaning of the scriptures through movement and color.”

You can watch an example at the following YouTube video.
