Tradition! to quote a great song from Fiddler On The Roof…

November 21, 2015

One of my favorite movies of all time is Fiddler On The Roof.  Tevye, the very Jewish father of 3 daughters has organized his life around traditions he inherited from his fathers and their fathers, all the way back to Moses, and before him, Abraham, in the Old Testament, and sings about it with passion in the movie.  (If you’ve never seen Fiddler On The Roof, you need to rent it or stream it and see if it doesn’t become one of your favorites, too.)

In our world, the idea of Tradition has fallen on hard times.  I grew up in the 60s (yes, I’m old), a time when Tradition was abhorred as part of the Establishment and all that was evil.  I think generations younger than me have maybe inherited this distaste of Tradition.  But I want to introduce you to what could be a great and very healthy Thanksgiving Meal Tradition for every family.

  1. Giving everybody an opportunity to express their thanksgiving on Thanksgiving. Who would have thought of such a thing. Here’s another idea: Giving everybody an opportunity to express their thanksgiving on other days of the year. “In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1Th 5:18 “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;” Eph 5:20
