It may sound silly but imagine the smiles, laughter, and joy one dance could share with someone else. It might be a children's song leaving many asking, "What IS the Hokey Pokey really about?" In a search for an answer, I found many yet Rev. Thomas Schmidt's closing sentences in a sermon summed up a great thought. What do you think?
"...the true sign of success is not the desired outcome,
success is knowing we have committed our whole selves
and acted in the best interest of everyone involved.
Success is knowing that we have worked to create the most favorable conditions for the most favorable outcome.
“You put your whole self in, you shake it all about.
the hokey pokey happens,
And you turn yourself around,
you change yourself and your change the world.
And that is what it is all about."
~ Rev. Thomas Schmidt
