Behold What You Are is written to open the possibilities of liturgy and liturgical awareness, in the church and of the church, Sunday by Sunday, season by season.

In a world increasingly and sharply divided, the image of the body of Christ can provide an alternate and life-giving narrative. We don't just gather to worship God; we gather to worship God together, even when that gathering is online. And we go forth together to be the body of Christ, that the world might be repaired and restored to God. This body is not finite and exclusive; it is porous and open to all. Our traditions are a wonderful springboard for refreshed liturgical expressions in settings within and beyond our church buildings. These expressions can connect with people who would not otherwise enter a beautiful but somewhat austere structure.

With some thoughtful reflection and intentionality, the public expression and formation of the body of Christ through liturgy can become more vital for all.
