Interesting post.

I attend mass as a non-communicant with my Catholic wife. I think our church does a nice job with the music. What bothers me is that not only can I not participate in the focus of the service (the Eucharist), but that I therefore miss out on the very large portion of the service that leads up to the Eucharist.

I grew up with evangelical worship, though, and I find the more reverent tone of Catholic liturgy refreshing. I pretty much had my fill of "praise music" that addressed Jesus like a girl you had a crush on in junior high. The mystery of Catholic worship not only appeals to me aesthetically; it feels somehow more "true."

That said, it can get dull. But aping the megachurch style is probably not the answer.

Anyway, I should see it.
