I generally don’t like this sort of thing but . . .

I found this amusing and fun

And even though I’m a little uncomfortable most times in seeing men in collars dancing around, these are young seminarians after all, the venue is not a liturgical setting and they danced like men and put some parody into the moves.

    Deborah,

    You wrote: And even though I’m a little uncomfortable most times in seeing men in collars dancing around, these are young seminarians after all, the venue is not a liturgical setting and they danced like men and put some parody into the moves.

    Then perhaps you would feel even more uncomfortable with plays like “Nunsense” and movies like “Sister Act”….

    But in truth, the stodgy stuffed shirt of a pastor is not going to attract people to his parish, and he is not going to attract new vocations to ordained ministry, either. We all need to cut loose and have some fun once in a while — it’s part of being fully human. This is good, clean, humor, and it portrays an aspect of the call to a vocation that confronts all who decide to enter the seminary or religious life. And the audience clearly enjoyed it!

    So we look to Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, and in particular v. 4 which says that there is a time to laugh and a time to dance. I don’t find anything anywhere in scripture that excludes the clergy from this.

    I did notice that the whole audience seems to be young people whose shirts appear to have a very similar design. Was this skit at some sort of vocational event?

    Norm.

    Yes, looking at white men imitating black men is always amusing.
