In two thought-provoking essays Canon Griffiths reminds us that our identity as Christians is expressed through our language and focussed by the patterns of liturgical ritual that are in turn reflected in the architecture of the Christian church. Christian identity is particularly evident in the Eucharist and in our historical urge to keep watch in prayer, the practice of ‘vigil’, which plays such a prominent role in contemporary culture. By understanding our identity and our use of rituals we are able to step outside the constraints of time and proclaim that we are ready to respond to God when He reaches out to us.
