I enjoyed and appreciate when the arts speak clearly and with a strong message.

I was at church (Hillcountry) and my older brother was with me. Worship music began and it felt like a typical Sunday. Trying to feel it, wondering what it would be like if I danced. Then, during a normal typical worship song, this deep base beat came in mixed with the music. It was slow and strong. I told my brother, "yeah, this is something that makes me want to dance. I could dance to this."
Then the lights turn off and the music shifts over to the rythmic slow song. It's totally dark except for a great white (like lightning) light coming from the high high ceiling. Simultaneously with the white light is a huge amount of white smoke from a smoke machine filling the upper room. The smoke is decending, the music is flowing strong and slow, and the soft sweet lyrics sing, "take me away......take me away."
It's impossible not to dance. I step out without much thought and begin to turn twist and move even into some spins and breakdance flowing stuff. Sharon, another dancer is dancing too.
Everything around, the people, the church, can't be seen. After a while the lights turn on and everything is back to normal. A normal looking middle-age country guy is up at the mic looking nervous about what just occurred. He says something like, " We won't judge this, lets just see what comes out of this. We will know what is right by who dwells in his presence." I am out of breath and my heart is thrilled with adreneline.
I awake still feeling my heart beating strong and feeling somewhat euphoric.
