PASTOR KERRY: The television show Dancing With The Stars is a big hit again this season and of course, it's the show where professional ballroom dancers are paired with celebrities that usually can't dance very well. Some of them are just pathetic and you know there are times when the professional dancers must get so frustrated as they're always getting their feet stepped on and sometimes they almost get dropped on their heads and they probably feel a lot like my wife did a while back when we made a little video for church that we called Dancing With The Pastor and in case you didn't see it the first time, we want to show it to you again because the talent is just so stunning that it will change your life.

PASTOR KERRY: Hey, it's Kerry and Chris and we're hear at Sherry's Academy of Dance and we're with the expert, Sherry, and she's going to train and teach us because Chris and I are committed to winning Dancing With The Stars and I believe we can do it with Sherry's help and Sherry, I'm going to be learning the, um…
PASTOR KERRY: Great!
CHRIS: You can do it Kerry…
SHERRY: You can do it…
CHRIS: You can do it!
SHERRY: We can do it.
PASTOR KERRY: Okay, okay, I'm ready! Here we go. Teach us Sherry!
SHERRY: Okay, guys, here we go, Salsa 101, all right?
SHERRY: So we're going to face the mirror (music playing) 1, 2, 3, kick, 1, 2, 3, kick and 1, 2, 3…now we don't want you to kick too high.
PASTOR KERRY: (Whispers) This is hard. This is a lot harder I thought it would be, but really it's not my fault. I was raised Baptist and we didn't dance. I mean, you could tap one foot, but if you tapped two feet it would be dancing and it was totally off limits so I've got a lot of catching up to do so you've got to understand it's not my fault.
SHERRY: (Making rhythmic sounds) Okay! And great! Roll into him and take a glance, don't drop her!
PASTOR KERRY: One of my best qualities is how flexible I am. I mean, I've just done a lot of stretching today and I realize now that I could probably be a ballerina if I wanted to just because of the flexibility and it's a spiritual gift.
