THE LIMINALITY OF LITURGY

Johan Cilliers

Abstract



This paper proposes that the church cannot be edified without taking cognizance of the role
and function of liturgy. Whilst liturgical experimentation seems to be the rule of the day, a
plea is made for responsible liturgical renewal that does not follow the opportunism of
fashionable liturgical cosmetics. This entails a deepened understanding of the liminality of
liturgy, especially in this time of transition in South Africa. Some key concepts of a liminal
liturgy are expanded on, namely: lament, re-framing, and anticipation.
