Liturgy and Ritual Like all religions, Christianity has an abundance of worship practices, and they vary widely depending on the variety of the denomination in question. , The ends of the spectrum have been designated as, fi rst, High Church, which in addition to the cognitive dimension, places a great emphasis on the impor— tance of symbols and ceremonies: in short, on the full uses of all the senses—— colorful vestments, highly developed music, reading/preaching, sacred food, incense, gestures—in the worship of God and the spiritual nourishing of the , individual and community. The opposite end of the spectrum is known as ' Low Church, where the employment of the senses is very largely eschewed, which are often seen as leading the believer away from the inner, spiritual real- ity of the Transcendent God. Its stress is on the Word, namely, God’s revela- f ' tion as found in the Bible, and then as expounded at considerable length in the sermon, and re ected further in the singing of manifold verses of hymns.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
