I have been taking a tribal bellydance class for almost a year now. I adore this class and have a great sense of accomplishment and joy each time I go. tribal belly dance is a fusion of American, Indian, and Arabic dance where a group is dancing in formations. We wear wool or cotton twirling skirts or yoga pants with belts or shawls around them. The tops are usually vest like and adorned with coins or yarns. My question is this; I have been invited to try out for the troupe..that is a dance group that does performances. They perform at the Arizona renaissance festival each year and other venues. Would it be wrong to join I really enjoy this dance and I see nothing wrong with it but I want to be sure I wouldn't be in some way offending the Lord. Please help as I am expected to try out in the next few weeks.

Very dear friends of 15 yrs in our Bible study group of 5 yrs, decided, without talking to any of us, to divorce after almost 20 yrs of marriage. They told us after the papers were signed. Godly people who absolutely love the Lord. She wanted the divorce. He did not and is broken hearted. Are we supposed to shun her? We did not get the opportunity for "Bible discipline" to go with one, then two, then before the elders... I love her deeply as my sister and friend in Christ, and I believe she is 100% decieved by her divorced friends. I just want to love on her and keep an open door, but I am confused that I may have not done what God says. Help.
