20And he arose, and
came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him,
and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight,
and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him;
and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they
began to be merry.
his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he
heard music and dancing.
In Jesus's parable
of the lost son. As the father saw his son returning home he called a
celebration. At that celebration the father commissioned music and
dance. The dance is a biblical response to redemption, love and reconciliation.
Let us dance the
dance of redemption.
