P 169 Celebrating Diversity in Christian Ritual: Honouring the Heritage of Minority Believers (2022)


In churches, the expectations of the majority culture can prevent people from minority cultural or religious heritages expressing their cultural identity through Christian rites of passage.

For believers, the rites of passage we use to mark life changes are social and deeply personal. As occasions where our personal experiences collide with the expectations and approval of others, it is crucial that rituals are constructed and conducted creatively, fully embracing the opportunity they offer for reconciliation and restoration in our communities.
