Opening sentence for my autobiography

You’re writing your autobiography. What’s your opening sentence?

“This is the story of a man who as a child wanted to become a priest or a welknown musical star, and after 45 years having done his best in ballet, concentrated himself onto the work for his church, preaching, social and aidwork, plus writing on the internet.”

  1. Funny enough, you’re the second person I have met who studied ballet before becoming a member of the clergy.

      Interesting, but for me not so surprising. At the ballet school as well as in the different companies I worked, in the changing rooms there was often spoken about religious subjects. Several of my colleagues were also very intrigued by the Creator and His creation, very well aware that we got this earth in loan and that we had to thank our creativity and possibility to move, thanks to Him.


    • Marcus Ampe says:

      For the company I was a artistic director I also took on several female dancers who had worked for a Christian dance company which brought sacral dances.

      In the 70s there were more such dance groups that brought dances to be presented in churches.

      I myself, when a member of the Baptist Church also was not afraid to use my body and voice to bring praise to God with many gospels, swinging around.
