The scriptures concerning dance on the front page don't seem to mention any dancing in the temple. Hmmm! Curious.

My mom goes to a Pentecostal church, and they do crazy stuff like that. Scares me to pieces!

She looks like she is 'smudging' the church - maybe she is in the wrong place! The term "smudge stick" entered the English language through Indigenous American Indian traditions in America and were used in New Age traditions of shamanism.A smudge stick is a bundle of dried herbs, most commonly white sage. (info from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smudge_stick)

You're welcome.

Now sing with me:

"Glory hoops,
They'll pass you bye,
Glory hoops,
In the wink of an old hag's eye . . ."

I know about these things--my sisters are pentecostals! but you know, I have seen them at Mass. A charismatic Mass.

It was funny when the organizers took them away--literally--for the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and some of them were mad.
