A deep strain of tribal politics is dividing societies around the globe. Organized religions are also coping with scandals, disappointments, and polarizing ideologies. The history of Christianity reveals that such frictions deeply wound the church. Fr. Richard S. Vosko recognizes that liturgical buildings are metaphorical expressions of the people of God. He proposes, in a relational way, that when all physical and psychological boundaries in a place of worship are removed people will discover a common ground. Building on theological foundations and design principles, Vosko envisions what an egalitarian "servant church" can look like. In a bold but thoughtful manner, he presents progressive insights into the fields of church art and architecture.
egalitarian places of worship' and social justice—although without exploring a <I>dynamic</I> use of the traditional distinction between nave and sanctuary—gently turns towards the core of a common ground: the healing, reconciling wound of the paschal mystery that transforms worshipers into the Body of Christ and the places they shape intoministers of hospitality and hope' in this world."
