liturgical language debate

You could argue that there is a conflict between Maggi in liturgical language, newness and cultural "relevance" (she quotes AKMA: Linguae Francae, Dialects, Pidgins, and Gibberish) and what I wrote in 42: Buzzwords say all the wrong things (Richard linked to it at connexions: Buzzwords say all the wrong things).

However, in fact I think there is a huge overlap in what we are saying.

Out with fashionable buzzwords, out with archaic language that is kept for the wrong reasons.

In with carefully thought out language that is simple yet expressive with richness.
