Gain appreciation for the arts and other cultural experiences.
Go to a play, dance recital, or some other cultural event. This could be a performance that one of the youth or another ward member is involved in. If possible, get permission to have the youth tour backstage or see some behind-the-scenes work to learn more about the effort involved in putting on a production. You could arrange to talk to one of the performers about his or her experience working in the arts. Discuss the parable of the talents and what the Lord desires us to do with the gifts we’ve been given (see Matthew 25:14–29).
Connect with what we’re learning
