Embodied Knowledge of God

Jennifer C. Lane


I believe that knowledge as it is referenced in the language of scripture differs from that acquired in the “institutions of the world,” (i.e. schools, universities, and other formal educational institutions). Knowledge in the scriptural sense is not what we know, but what we are, what we have be- come. This knowledge is knowing how to do things, instinctively knowing how to be in situations. This knowledge is not abstract, but embodied and it is modeled for us in ritual. The ordinances point to a way of being we achieve through the process of conversion; they model a way of being in which we know God.
