A Kerala church priest wearing the quintessential white robe and grooving to a gospel song with moves like those of a professional dancer has taken the internet by storm.
Posted by Shine Antony on 27 June, the short video clip lasting a minute has a group of young dancers performing to the song ‘Nothing my God cannot do’. The highlight of the video however is when Father Merton D Silva, who serves at St Ambrose Church in Kerala’s Vypeen district, breaks into the flash mob organised on the church premises. A good look at the short video and you would see the priest’s amazing moves are no less than that of a professional dancer, leading to the video’s popularity on the Internet.
While gospel singing and dancing during worship in churches are quite common, it is unusual to see a church priest in white robes participate in a choreographed dance number. While this may be a small flash mob, but this priest’s rare display of fun has reminded us that it sometimes we all need put our parenting stress and fears aside and simply enjoy ourselves in the moment.
What do you think of Father Mertons’s dance moves?
