African Praise Celebration

Today at my parent’s church was a big celebration because a Bishop from Nigeria was visiting. It definitely wasn’t your average church service – there was lots of singing, praying and of course, dancing.

My brother busted out some moves with the pastor:

The women of the church did their own dance:

I love what they’re wearing – their hats? Amazing. I seriously want a similar outfit.

Even Mama Bean danced along:

The men drummed for a while and then they all got up to dance:

Even Mr. Bean went and joined them!

Doesn’t brother Bean look spiffy?

With all the dancing and singing, I can understand how church in Nigeria can easily be 5 hours long!

What’s the most interesting church service you’ve been to?
