“The sacramental imagination begins from the assumption that our discipleship depends not only- not even primarily- on the conveyance of ideas into our minds, but on our immersion in embodied practices and rituals that form us into the kind of people God calls us to be. It is only Cartesian ‘thinking things’ that can do without liturgy; for we embodied creatures, whether ancient or postmodern, the rhythms of ritual and liturgy are gracious practices that enable discipleship and formation.” (Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism, 140)
