Religious institutions with a long history often have times when they offer special celebrations to their congregations, and they each have a unique meaning within the faith. Some are about surviving in ancient times when the world held few measures of safety, and others are about the birth or rebirth of a former religious leader or prophet. There are often commemorative displays, dioramas, plays and parades that accompany the rituals for these special events.
Participation in these special events can give an even deeper meaning to those invited to be part of them, and many congregants are eager for the opportunity. As they learn how to go about their role in the grand scheme of the day, they are given advanced lessons to help them understand the role. This alone will give them an in-depth look into their religion, and learning their part will help them find a sense of satisfaction and connection.
