Journal of Religious Ethics 7 (2):239 - 248 (1979)
AbstractUse of narrative metaphors (e.g., "story") in moral theory makes possible an account of public worship as the ground for Christian moral life. By enabling us to picture how our moral agency acknowledges the living God, such worship grounds the principle that Christian moral endeavor takes shape in God's living presence. The community professes that, in its worship, its heritage of images of human life under God-creation, redemption, church, and eternal life-effectively reshapes our lives. Thus worship empowers us to see and to shape our moral agency as a response of praise to God as Creator and Lord.
