“Meaning begins with the feelings and moves from feeling to intuition and on to thinking or rational analysis. ‘The symbol gives rise to the thought,’ wrote Ricoeur. Religious thought is grounded in religious experience. Our personal encounter with that ultimate mystery which is God is nurtured, expressed, and communicated through dance, painting, music, sculpture, poetry, and drama.”

– john westerhoff, “What Has Zion To Do With Bohemia?”
