SECOND AND THIRD CATEGORIES

The second set of priorities from the Pray Tell survey seem to aim the liturgy at creating a human experience of divine presence.  
They seek a strong sense of:
  • Wonder and mystery
  • The heavenly liturgy
  • Reverence for Christ in all His modes of presence
  • Closer union with Christ in the Eucharist
  • Encouragement for silence and prayer.
  • God’s wonder
  • God’s beauty
The third set of priorities seems more focused on creating an experience of Christian community.
They seek a strong sense of:
  • Strengthening faith and community
  • Naturalness in the liturgical action
  • The presider as teacher, leader, and host of the assembly.
  • A collective act rather than private piety
  • A gathered community present intentionally
  • Continuity between congregation and ministers
  • Natural reverence without self consciousness
