Résumé
The paper engages the question of how traditional religion persist in an increasingly problematic and complex swiss context. In particular, the chapter looks at the phenomenon of charismatic worship as a vehicle for resignifying the meaning of chronic suffering, over and against the traditional evangelical expectation that worldly hardship is but a temporary trial, to be endured and overcome by true believers. The experience of ongoing physical and psychological suffering is mediated by ritualized narratives, which resituate the afflicted "stakeholders" as important models of Christian life. In so doing, these narratives richly dramatize the resolution of theodicy by showing that, far from being absent in the lives of sufferers, God is especially present.
