The message behind Kathy Susnjar's song, 'One New Man' can be found in Ephesians 2:15, Galatians 3:28, Romans 10:12 and Colossians 3:11 - Jew and Gentile one in Messiah. It is a slow, worshipful dance, the main step being a walking step we call Ezekiel's wheel.  This dance is nice using chiffon handkerchief scarves.  The song ending is extended and we invariably chose different endings - sometimes free dance, sometimes alternating Davids CW/CCW.
