Recently I participated in an extraordinary homecoming at Sligo church, where I spent three years as associate pastor for evangelism. It was a grand reunion reminiscent of heaven as I reconnected with friends I had not seen in almost two decades and sang of God’s great faithfulness. I was dancing in my heart.

Since joining the Adventist Church more than 30 years ago, I’ve heard the caustic criticism that dancing is the sole domain of the devil. But a review of the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy writing shows that there is dancing, and then there’s dancing.

A diligent study of His Word reveals that God loves dancing (see Ps. 149:1-4). He Himself put rhythm in our bodies and the beat in our hearts so that when we hear the sweet music of grace, we can respond naturally to the cadence of holiness and the melodies of salvation.
