The fact that current liturgical renewal is not based on sound theological reflection, is cause for concern. A narrative approach to liturgy is therefore proposed, which would allow a better connection between the cultural story on the one hand, and the story of the gospel and the liturgical tradition on the other. The article therefore explores possibilities for a narrative understanding of the liturgical context, and shows how a worship liturgy could be created like a collage instead of in the form of linear argumentation.

Keywords: Narratiewe; Liturgie; aanbidding; vernuwing; Evangelie
