Art Saves Lives.
When we turn away from that inner voice, we suffer a loss of the spirit. For kids growing up in a difficult world, finding a positive purpose is incredibly challenging, but essential to their survival.. And following the muse can bring a powerful message to the wider world.
That’s why I support the work of my friend Rev. Delores Roberts, who runs art and writing programs for young people in the DC suburbs. Her youth theater group works for two years on each performance, and this year’s play is based on the real life experiences of several students. Rev. Roberts works tirelessly and collaboratively with her local schools and young performers. A professional music director, acting coach and choreographer donate their time to the production, and the result is amazing. Young talent is developed, an important story is told, and everybody wins.
I know you all have lots of preparation for the holidays and other events to choose from, or live far away, but even if you can’t make it to the show please send your good wishes to these dedicated kids and this inspiring program. Visit www.zoelifeministries.org and offer an encouraging word at the blog, keep an eye on events like writing contests, reading club, awards and more. And contribute in any way you can.
