Alan Hirsch has a very interesting post about liminality and communitas, have a look at it. It highlights some of the problems associated with being a middle-class, comfortable church in relation to participating in the mission of God. 

So the related ideas of liminality and communitas describe the dynamics of the Christian community inspired to overcome their instincts to ‘huddle and cuddle’, and form themselves around a common mission that calls them onto a dangerous journey to unknown places. A mission which calls the church to shake off its collective securities and to plunge into the world of action where they will experience disorientation and marginalization but also where they encounter God and each other in a new way. – Alan Hirsch
