Former lapdancer Anna Nobili has converted and become a nun according to this story. She now dances a different dance for prisoners and hospital patients and says:
Jesus is a God who dances, not one who stands still. It’s not a dance we readily understands.
“God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform”
The idea of a dancing God intrigued 20th century song writer Sidney Carter. His classic hymn Lord of the Dance has been for me a test of a good hymn book. For some editors it is too controversial for inclusion.
Cecil Collins painted a wonderful picture of Jesus dancing on the cross. He’s tapping his feet to the music of the clowns’ procession as he turns his gaze on them and away from the well regimented procession of soldiers who take themselves far too seriously.
