introducing liturgical movement through youth

I keep thinking of ideas to add to the panel discussion on liturgical dance which was on the WBBM TV program, "Different Drummers" on Sunday morning. Since the focus of "Different Drummers" is youth, one point to have brought out is that congregations are generally positively disposed toward seeing young people actively participating in the worship service. Whereas they may be skeptical about adults doing liturgical dance or movement, they will more likely be receptive to children and youth participating or leading or ministering through liturgical movement. Young people represent the future, our hope. They bring us back to our childhoods, before all our adult inhibitions started creeping in.
Well, as the host, Polly Toner, said, the time just flew by. there was no time to be able to say everything there was to say.
