"Ordinarily Sacred" aims to illuminate the sacred quality of experience that on the surface appears mundane or secular. Through stories, metaphors, and images, the author claims, we discover the religious or the sacred in the activities of ordinary life - dreams, play, and memory. In these activites, the author suggests, we create texts, make meaning and imagine reality in such a way as to lend symbolic significance to life. She also suggests that through these activities, we define our relation to the divine, and to one another.
