Observers in any part of the world are not those who gain meaning through participation, and they are often at a loss for a deeper explanation. For those who are part of a religious institution, participating in religious rituals takes them out of the role of observer and makes them an active congregant. Their ability to perform any part of a ritual will help them find a clearer understanding of it, but it can also lead to a deeper sense of clarity as to the reason they have chosen to remain within their faith.
Many religious rituals require their congregants to take only a small part in their normal services, but holidays or special events can provide them with a larger role. Those who are looking for more meaning within their worship will find that becoming more active will enable to them find a more concrete connection with the goals of their faith.
