    "...All things must be done properly and in an orderly manner" - 1 Corinthians 14:40

    Here's a prime example of how not to do it...

    I don't mind enthusiasm, shouts of amen (as long as it doesn't turn into a shouting match), waving/raising of hands, or strong emotion, but in my opinion, the aisle dancing/running, coat waving and baptistry diving takes the congregation's focus off hearing, worshiping and enjoying God.

    If you want to do that in private worship, go for it. But public congregational worship? Nope. Not where I have any authority.

    Did anybody notice that when the music stopped, the Spirit stopped moving? Or at least the people stopped running.

    Kind of reminds me of the time Doug Fields said he got in trouble for having Youth Jacuzzi night in the baptismal. There are just some ideas that... when they enter your mind... you just have to be willing to shoot down. :tonofbricks:
