If you’ve been around Woodridge United Methodist Church (the church I serve as Koinonia Pastor) at all during the last couple of Advent seasons, you likely know that I’m a big fan of the song, “The King of Glory Comes.” I liked it well enough on it’s own, but after I found this video, well, it was cemented as my favorite Advent song.
We’ve danced to the video in worship ever since.
There’s even video evidence of my hilariously pathetic dancing skills attempting to replicate the Colbert classic. Might be best to think of it as an homage. Actually, it’s probably best to just avert your eyes. But if you’re a glutton for punishment, here you go. Thankfully, it’s only 17 seconds worth.
Tomorrow is the beginning of Holy Week (the week leading up to Easter when we Christians remember the final few days of Jesus’ life, retracing the story from Palm Sunday through Holy Saturday), so what am I doing bringing up Advent?
Because this piece of video awesomeness surfaced recently. Anything with Colbert is worth watching, of course. But, at the risk of sounding like I’m auditioning to write for Upworthy, at the 5:11 mark the possibility of something spectacular is introduced. Finally, at 5:52, my hopes were fulfilled and my giddiness went totally berserk! Hope you like this as much as I did.
