Bolz-Weber says people like her and her friends — young, urban, and skeptical of authority — have to "culturally commute" when they attend mainline churches.  Her congregation,House for All Sinners and Saints, is based on an ideal of welcoming everyone and putting the liturgy back in the congregation's hands. By sitting in the round, worshippers are encouraged to look at each other, as well as the preacher.
