On the Importance of Ritual and Family

Uh, as you maybe have figured out given my handle, I'm a big fan of liturgy and ritual.  We humans seem to be hard-wired for it.  The power of ritual to make real the circumstances of our lives ... well, let's just say that if there was anything I thought I could add to the academic discourse on this subject, I'd be working on my PhD already.

Instead, I offer you this story.  Enjoy.
