Rituals and Unseen Connections @InnRoads

I just finished listening to the latest episode of Bard & Bible. Mike Perna had posted a few questions in The Tavern Facebook group about ritual. I responded to Mike’s questions and Mike used my responses in his podcast. One thing that stood out to me was Mike made a connection in my responses that I missed: the connection between the focus and intentionality in tai chi and and the focus of using icons! Mike is correct that tai chi is a series of focused and controlled movements. Mike also points out how using icons can help one focus on Christ and the gospel. When I was responding to Mike’s questions, I was treating them as two separate questions. Mike saw the connection in my answers and pointed it out in the podcast.

And for the record, Mike did pronounce my last name correctly. 😉
