A Time to Dance

Brad M. Griffin | Feb 6, 2012

Theres a revolution going down in Gaza. A dance revolution. And its led by young people, many teenagers, many of whom live in refugee camps.

My wife shared this article and video with me last week, created by these young dancers seeking change in the midst of oppression:

Whats revolutionary is the courage these dancers are showing by speaking out against what they see as social injustice. And they arent just thinking of themselves. One of the leaders shares in the article, “We have a dream that one day we will have our own center where we can teach children to break dance and give them a stage to express their feelings.”

You might want to share this video with students in your ministry or your home this week to spark a conversation about what it looks like to act courageously to seek justice in the face of wrongs.
