Definitely! I've been reading quite a few books lately that make a big deal about community formation via liturgy. I wonder...how much is just recitation—noise. "A reverent noise, no doubt; even a beautiful one. But still, just a noise."
Think about that the next time somebody talks about community formation via reciting a liturgy. I'm not picking on high church here; in fact that wasn't even on my mind. The argument has been used for community formation in the ancient world. But I guess it could be transported to the modern church, I just wasn't thinking about that.
