About Dancing to God (and me)

Dancer Image (DTF6342896)We are all dancing to God, living our lives
in ever-widening circles that bring us farther and farther away from the “us”
that we have created and closer to the “us” that God envisions we can be. We are
all dancing toward God. But along the way we dance to music. And, at some point,
the music changes. Rather than dancing to the music of the streets, the music of
our earthly lives, we begin to hear a different song. We begin to dance to God.

Welcome! This blog is a collection of somewhat random thoughts and reflections based on the Revised Common Lectionary, other Scriptures, and my faith journey.  It is a dance, a dance to God.

I am Rev. Shelli Williams, a United Methodist pastor in the Texas Annual Conference living outside of Houston, TX with a rescued black lab named Maynard.  I currently am Pastor of First United Methodist Church in Wharton, TX.

I would love to hear from you, to hear of your own dance to God.

Grace and Peace,

  1. Shelli,
    Just found your site while trolling/mining for fresh ideas for Holy Week. What a treasure!
    A billion blessings and thank you’s ! … and one small quibble (no other size):
    you said., at end of the excellent, Central Murder..
    So kneel at the Cross…kneel and worship Christ, crucified.

    I don’t think that Jesus ever asked to be worshipped, so IMHO better wording is Worship God thru Christ,
    and ther by join Him on the cross.

    Jesus said, “Why do you call me good? Only God is good.

    Wishing you a blessed conclusion of your lenten journey and a Happy Easter!
