This week I’m proud to present the Grand Rapids Lip Dub, which Roger Ebert calls “The Greatest Music Video Ever Made.” After Newsweek labeled Grand Rapids, Michigan, a “dying city,” thousands of Grand Rapids citizens, including the mayor, responded with a huge lip dub.
Filmed in one continuous take, the 9-minute video rendition of Don McLean’s “American Pie” has sparked an international response.
My response—“Church, take notice—if the Grand Rapids LipDub is what an American city can do to stir up community pride, what can we do to stir up Kingdom pride! We belong to an eternal community—let’s promote it!”
What do you think? American pride? Kingdom community pride? Your opinion is invited.
In Him together, Susan Gaddis
