So let me tell you how it all started... I had this chick I followed on Instagram. And she is a youth director at a local church. She posted the verse one day "But when you give a reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous. Luke 14: 13-14
She went on to write, "This verse has always intrigued me. I always think about this verse when I'm at a party of something. I really do wanna do this some day."
I responded to her post with this..."Let's throw a party. I know plenty to invite." She said, "I am so not joking. Can we please?" And I said, "It's been started. How does June 14 look for you? We're on it. We need a good name for our "dance". Been discussing with our teens here and they are fired up."
She said, "Oh my gosh. oh my gosh. oh my gosh!! I need your number. I wanna talk. I am so very excited!"
Here's Josh. Been knowing him since he was born! He grew up on my street as kids. And now, he is 34 years old! Crazy!!
You can check out our MMPT blog post all about the dance, here. Emery put a blog on our mmptinc.com site. It was one of those nights that you say, "I'll never forget". It was beautiful. It was inspiring. It was just plain awesome!!
