5. Liturgical Dance Music or Mime Group Music
As a symbolic gesture of unity, appreciation, and community, it is suggested that these selections be rendered with live choir and accompaniment, if possible. This would be a great opportunity to have full participation of the entire music and arts ministry (music, drama, dance, steppers, mime choirs, etc.). If screens are available, past pictures of the pastor enjoying the music and arts ministry could be strategically integrated into the routine so as not to interfere with the overall presentation and yet enrich the moment.
