An Episcopal church in San Francisco has redecorated in a rather unusual way. According to the diocesan newsletter:
St. Gregory, the fourth century bishop of Nyssa, extolled use of the dance in worship. Today, the San Francisco congregation that bears his name incorporates dance in its liturgies, while two rows of saints that surround them are � not surprisingly � permanently caught mid step in what looks like the same Tripudium, danced by worshippers below.
…Among the honored: Malcolm X, musicians John Coltrane and Ella Fitzgerald, dancer Martha Graham, Hawaiian Queen Liliuokalani, Sergius and Bacchus (4th century Roman soldiers and lovers), Charles Darwin, Margaret Mead, Jewish theologian Abraham Heschel, Muslim poets Rumi and Sadi, Confucian Kangxi (Chinese Emperor who reigned 1661-1772), Buddhist poet Su Shi, Hindu poet Mirabai, Shintoist Chiume Sugihara (the Japanese “Schindler”), and Greek pagan mathematician Hypatia.
Kind of a holy Can Can I guess. Speaking of the Can Can, check out this page of Cows doing the Can Can.
