(17th in a series of posts on Touchstone Theatre)
We have gathered today in the spirit of community to rise up and embrace the possibilities of our future.
And what amazing possibilities they are.
They shine like a piece of polished Bethlehem steel.
They shine like our lights at Christmas time.
They shine like the Star of Bethlehem itself.
You see, for generations, Bethlehem defined itself through its pride of industry through Bethlehem Steel,
But for the last twenty years we have found so many new ways to define ourselves.
We can be anything we want to be.
We are free to dream.
We are unBound!
In this “Festival UnBound,” we will come together for a week of celebration and exploration.
Celebration of this wonderful community,
And exploration of just what kind of a future we want for ourselves.
Throughout the week we will share our dreams of the future,
and then like. like a message in a balloon,
we will send our dreams out into the world,
because those dreams, our dreams, make a difference!
And now I hereby declare,
LET THE FESTIVAL BEGIN!
