I have been blessed with the opportunity to see live theatre literally all over the world from school shows to broadway to off broadway to in our church which rivals broadway to local theatre to international theatres as well as anything and everything in between. Some good, some bad but all entertaining in their own right. I love being transported from my present state to a far away often out of this world dreamy land.
What a privilege to have seen shows locally, in New York City, in London, and beyond. Whenever you get the chance, let theater transport you to another place or whisk you away to another time, but look for the lessons to take with you after the curtain falls. That goes for any show including short films, movies, and documentaries too.
But, there’s always takeaways from the plays or musicals so keep your eyes and ears open. Then, go and apply them. For instance, from Fiddler on the Roof we learn that without our traditions are lives would be shaky like a fiddler on the roof.
What traditions do you have in your life?
Make some habitual. I promise they will enrich your earthly days.
Please share the traditions you have and perhaps together we will come up with more ideas to…
One tradition we have is to try to go to some type of show each year together as a family. Now that the kids are getting older and married off, it must remain so the tradition can be passed down to the next generation. The real value for us is time set aside to be together. That is a tradition worth keeping week in and week out. Make time for the things that matter most. God first, family second and I promise life will be sweeter. Keep those traditions that draw you closer to God and family a priority.
“…stand firm and hold to the traditions…”. 2 Thessalonians 2.15
