Show Notes

In this episode, Christopher and Riley are joined by guest Daniel Meehan for a discussion contemplating symbols and their meanings. After a brief discussion defining symbols and meanings, they delve into a discussion of some symbols and meanings beginning at convention and culminating with invention. Dan demonstrates his devotional practice of definition, deconstruction, and reconstruction of symbols and meanings, following the wisdom pattern, as Richard Rohr, OFM calls it, of order, disorder, reorder, to discover differing and deeper meanings of the symbols discussed. Riley and Chris follow Dan’s lead and prove the power of his practice by passing from convention in the interpretation of symbols to invention, discovering differing and deeper meanings of symbols discussed with him.
