“Just Walk Across the Room”
Dance steps, dance mats, tuxedos/suits (tuxedo t-shirts), Art Deco
Color: Black/white, Red-orange as an accent, gold/silver
Evangelism, following Jesus lead, offering radical love and acceptance to people,
learning how to not step on peoples toes. Discovering life stories (song).
Acceptance, Love, Testimony, Christ-likeness, listen, develop, discover, discern, earning the right to be heard, credibility, promptings of the spirit, authenticity, take a risk, extend a hand
Evangelism is scary, awkward… hard to learn for some, easy for others – like dancing.
Once you’ve got it, it’s like a drug.
Like a song, evangelism comes naturally when you know the words.
Places to find song ideas & genre:
Create a “Walk across the room” jingle for three gals in front of big mic
Michael Buble and Harry Connick for song ideas
Big Band – Lots of horns w/ mutes
“I Love Lucy” set
Let My Life Song sing to you
Big Daddy Weave, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy,
The Royal Crown Review, Glen Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington
Song ideas don’t all have to be within the big band genre. Any song that would create a transformational moment is fair game. Songs within the genre can be opener/ice breaker elements, and/or walk-ins, pre-service recordings, greeting music, etc. So, don’t limit yourself too much. If you can find “transformational-moment” songs within the genre, that is even better.
