“Gestures are a simple language that transcends national barriers and even personal conversation.  We don’t have to say hello, we just wave.  We don’t need to say we’re sorry; we can simply strike our breasts.  Gestures help us to communicate what we’re feeling without having to say a word.  They are the language of emotion.  . . .

Friedrich Engles wrote once, ” An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.”  . . . Go to a sacred spot to pray – or – regularly “give yourself” to some conscious, tangible embodiment of God’s presence in your life.  Action — gesture — ritual — is what connects us to the center of ourselves” — to God.
