THE LIMINALITY OF LITURGY
AbstractThis 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.
