I treasure the pleasure of 'giving' more than receiving.
There are countless opportunities through involvement in LCT to reach masses of people whose spirits can be lifted every December . This is a large contingency of other do-gooders, and, I honestly imagine myself participating in this inspirational holiday program at Grace Polaris for the rest of my life, because it feels so worthy!
It is a spectacular volunteer effort. Most of us give our personal time on a strictly voluntary basis. It renews our spirits as we get busy and fully involved in preparations for the production that will light up all the many faces that come to see the ingenuity and merriment that is packaged in LCT.
LCT is a holiday entertainment showcase event.
For me personally, giving presents serves a purpose during the holidays. Unfortunately too many gifts get purchased in a shopping frenzy and I feel frazzled by the time my santa work is done. Some gifts generate the joyfulness I intend. Others do not.
I have repeatedly reaped the greatest gift of all seeing the impact LCT has on the lives of complete strangers, as well as many of the volunteers working alongside me during the LCT season!
Words do not do justice nor can I fully explain what makes LCT so special. It is a heart-pumping entertaining musical program. But LCT offers much, much more. It is unparalleled in its ability to bring happiness to hundreds of people during the holidays.
LCT uses a stage but we use the entire auditorium to make the audience feel part of the action...the set changes each year and scenes typically include both modern day and settings from ancient biblical times, which are changed rapidly back and forth as the main characters journey involves a discovery that goes way back in time.
There is fun and serious drama. The dialogue and lyrics of songs can evoke laughter and tears and touch on all possible human emotions as evidenced by amazing audience reactions at every performance.
Many lives have been redirected by LCT throughout the years. The show as designed enlightens members of the audience. AND I have seen LCT positively effect all the people who work on and off the stage too.
LCT is a gift that comes wrapped in the messages learned from it. It relays good will for all mankind and provides overflowing reasons to believe faithfully in GOD.
It IS a colossal congregational organization masterpiece that will rock your soul!
There are entire families that make their stage debuts during LCT. Moms become dancing angels; grandmas sit at the top of giant Christmas trees filled with all the other members of the live choir (There are two giant people-filled trees; these obviously are the reason for the "Living Christmas Tree" name!)
Tons of kids, including infants, are also activated in LCT! Some children may be cider servers and others horse and donkey tenders. Others transform into little shepherds and kings attendants on stage.
LCT includes seasoned choreography, exquisite costumes, and, cool theatrical special effects. All of this will keep even the smallest child in their seat spellbound for two hours with no intermissions.
There is so much good that comes from experiencing this show it makes the price of tickets a great value. I purchase tickets for all my real estate clients each year. Everyone I know is offered a chance to join me for this wonderful time celebrating the season of giving!
My suggestion for THE PERFECT GIFT: TAKE SOMEONE TO SEE THE LIVING CHRISTMAS TREE!
