Secular Society and the Language of Worship

W Graham Monteith

Should liturgical language adapt to secular culture? Is it simple enough to make God more immediate? What of the re-emergence of 'old fashioned religion'? The sociology of religion shows that however 'simplistic' its language, worship needs to be simple in the sense of relating to life where the 'language of the market place' is used.
