About this item

How does the universal experience of suffering relate to the experience of worship? Questioning how Anglican liturgy welcomes people who are suffering, this book uniquely applies a narrative-ritual model for the analysis of both the liturgical text and worship services themselves. The author draws on interviews with participants in worship and clergy. Highlighting several elements in the liturgy which address suffering, including the Eucharist, songs, sermons, and prayers of intercession, this book shows the significance of a warm and safe liturgical community as necessary context for suffering people to find consolation. Based on the concept of remembrance this book pleads for liturgy that attends to the suffering of both God and people.
