“EVEN IN TIMES of great danger and haste there is a place for ritual in the spiritual life. God is careful to give very specific instructions on how families should celebrate the first Passover. God is a God of symbols, who impregnates common objects with divine significance. The precision with which God creates the Passover meal will be a precision he brings to the law and to the construction of the tabernacle. Why is important, and what, but also how: how we speak, how we pray, how we act, how we worship. This matters to God, and it ought to matter to us. It plays a role in what we retain and what kind of persons we become.”
