UNPACKING THE DANCE--Dykstra and Bass on a theology of Christian practice

Idea for Dancing on the Monkey Bars: The dance is lived theology, the indivisible intermixing of theoria and poiesis that is summed up in praxis (reflective action). Theoria informs poiesis and poiesis informs theoria. In the living of it, the dancers, when honest to the true dance, increasingly become like Jesus, the Master Dancer.

Ideas drawn from:
"A Theological Understanding of Christian Practices"
by Craig Dykstra and Dorothy C. Bass
in Practicing Theology
Ed. by Miroslav Volf and Dorothy C. Bass
