Because of our traditions,
we’ve kept our balance for many, many years.
And because of our traditions,
every one of us knows who he is
and what God expects him to do. – Words from a fiddler on the roof:
I wonder what we might need to learn from the people of Anatevka, in “Fiddler on the Roof” for our generation
Think about this for a minute:
Without traditions, our lives would be as shaky as a fiddler on the roof…
How does that sit with you? As a people, how do we keep our balance? are traditions synonymous with ‘balance?’ what signs, what rituals & what symbols characterizes your life? What does the rhythms of our lives say about us? How should we care?
