I will respond for now just to the general topic of cultural engagement as it relates to worship. I believe there are two general errors: 1) how we worship should not relate and/or adapt to the culture and/or 2) how we worship should primarily relate to the culture ie. the message stays the same but the methods change. In my view the flexible middle is most healthy. I have tried to live into this middle place by helping my congregation learn to reconnect to ancient prayer methods such as the use of icons and praying the psalms. But we use projection, modern translations, guitars with the psalm, etc.
