Happy Feet speak where words cannot

Here's an idea - go watch the movie Happy Feet. The lead character, a little penguin named Mumble, changes the fishing habits among humans through his unique gift of tap dancing. Does that sound impossible? It's one of the things I love about the movie. He doesn't have a voice - can't sing - and is ignored by his own tribe of penguins - he is Mumble. And yet, when he stands before humans and wants to get their attention he falls back on what he does naturally - he dances. And it is so interesting and unique that he is tagged and followed back to his tribe. And when he returns and gets his message across - they dance, all of them. And it saved them, because it caused a furor among the humans who came to watch.

What is unique about you, your family, friends or faith? How can you dance it out? Go be yourself in front of the world - bring them to your door and then teach your people to dance too.

What a movie! Makes me want to dance.
