Giselle and the body of Jesus

31 Jan

At the Royal Opera House I saw the ballet ‘Giselle’ this week. This peasant girl worships her love with her dance, her body.
Jesus used his body, to worship, to dance, for His Gather God.
Giselle moves from human form to a ghostly supernatural form; Jesus choose to move from God to a human form while still remaining God. Both narratives are paradigms but in reverse of each other and both, each holds an elemental truth: love is worship.
Giselle dances to save her prince who rejected her; Jesus lives, dances to save us. We are His loves.
Everyone worships someone or something.
Praise my Saviour that he died, he danced and died for me. He still dances.
