Finding a Theme in Ceremonies
Generally, a ceremony is a type of program that has a central controlling theme, subject, idea or message. Everything that happens in the ceremony leads to the full development of that theme. A ceremony may be sad, serious, funny, dignified, happy or sober, but it must have a definite purpose. A ceremony may inspire spiritual values, happiness, character development, love of the outdoors, love for our fellow humans; the list is endless. Ceremonies need to fit the place, the people and the message.
