To be effective, liturgy has to strike a balance between heaven and earth. What I mean is that liturgy needs to have enough earth that it can speak to our reality as well as enough heaven to give us a glimpse of what we could be, a challenge to become what we should.

In practice we see people of all faiths oppressing women in the name of religion. I like this video as an icon that moves us from our reality to what should and could be.
