My Mom Once Forced Me To Wear A Denim Dress On Stage When I Sang. She Said It Could Have Been Worse. Mom, You Were Right. I Stand Corrected.

Okay, my lovelies, today is a rather serious post. I hope you'll bare with me.

I just feel it's important for us to have a RENEWED MIND. Every day. Scripture calls us to this. Does it not?

Now I realize that some of you out there might be unsure what exactly a RENEWED MIND is. Allow me to explain...

Oh, wait. You know what? I'll let my friends do the talking for me. I'm pretty sure they explain it better than I ever could, anyway.



You heard right.

It's Christ. In. Me. Two, three, four. Break it down - six, seven, eight. And turn, one, two, Port de bras, Port de bras, and moonwalk, Jazz hands, and spin in pumps, spin in pumps.

*If you have any trouble viewing the video go directly to the YouTube link (The Renewed Mind Is The Key).

I was watching The Soup and saw this a few days ago. I'm telling you, I laughed so hard I CRIED. Is that horrible or what? lol. I cannot help it...I'm laughing hysterically as I write this.

It is just that good.

Shucks! I am too late :-(

Sarah W. said...

I did see that a couple of weeks ago. SOOOO funny and so sad. I mean, we are all busy, right? And they took lots of precious time out of their lives to rehearse this. Sadness.
But I love "jazz hands". Do you watch Ugly Betty? The little boy does jazz hands! Hilarious.

File that under "What WERE they thinking???" That is hilarious! You do that when you sing, don't you, Melissa?

The Hultman's said...

Ugh!! I saw this on the Soup and could not beleive what I was seeing! I know God says make a jouful "noise"...does that include a joyful "dance" (can we even call it that) too??

The Hultman's said...

PS. it worked when I watched it...

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the real reason why Baptists don't dance.

Oh dear...I was afraid to post what I was really thinking until I read your other comments. That was hilarious...great message, but what were they thinking? It's not even a good beat! I kept thinking it was some comedy skit on SNL.

Tonya said...

Wow! I don't know what else to say. How did the audience make it through without crazy peals of laughter?

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

Okay, I was able to see the video, it was just choppy. Didn't load well. However, I saw enough, LET ME TELL YOU!! That is hysterical. I am so thankful our Church High School Choir director didn't make us do those moves. Some of her choreography let A LOT to be desired, but now.....not feeling so bad about it.

Merrie said...

Nothing worse than white church people getting down and getting funky. Nothing.

KO said...

There is nowhere to begin...nowhere....

Kim said...

*SNORK*

Robin said...

Oh my. I guess that's all there is to say.

Aubrey said...

No way.

I'm speechless.

But not laugh-less! LOL

Lisa said...

This could so be a SNL spoof or something that Claudia Lasiter did on a Sunday morning. haha

Thanks for the laugh.

memphislis said...

Darn it, somebody took my Baptist/ dancing one already!

Anonymous said...

Oh. My. Gosh. Just last night, my pastor's wife (who doubles as my sister-in-law) showed me this video. I was speechless, and let me tell you that is rare! Are they kidding? No, apparently not. But they should be. Seriously.

katy said...

What. Was. That.

I want to fall over in hysterics but I'm too shocked and confused...
LOL

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

Okay. The first things that come to mind:
1) How recent IS this? At first I thought it was from my HS days (20+ years ago). But the dude had a headset mic.
2) Oh no, he didn't just break it down just past the halfway mark, did he? I'm. speechless.
3) What kind of internal dialogue do 20-somethings in this century have to have to make them DO the things I saw them do on that stage? (The lady on the right is closer to my age. I figure she might have thought she was "hip" and "down with it".) I must pass this link on to my husband. Insanity like this needs to be SHARED.

Lula! said...

I first saw this last week and laughed for 3.4 hours.

And don't you LOVE how they are doing this FOR REAL? I mean, they are gettin' their groove on, singing for Jesus, being all white and stuff. And they really, truly think they are bad as all get out.

They're not. Bless 'em.

Lacey in the Sky said...

I seriously laughed forever when I saw this on The Soup & then proceeded to do impressions for my family.(ends up I couldn't do it justice.) SO FUNNY. Praise Jesus!!(she says as she's "raising the roof")

Lynda said...

Good Lord - what made you LOOK for this??? lol

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

I discovered this along with the "Jesus is my Friend" video a few weeks ago, posted them on my blog, and will never be the same. I can't stop watching them.

Lacey said...

It's been two days, and I still have this song stuck in my head. It's not funny! (no matter how hard everyone in my household thinks it is...)
