Reply To: Are there elements of ancient and/or modern Near Eastern Christianity that are present in your own church/faith life? If so, what are they? If not, would you be open to implementing any?

Thank you Michael.
Yes, music is an important cultural means of communication, even in a church service. The Catholic, Orthodox, and Eastern traditions are very rich in their liturgy. My question is whether the words are spoken and sung in the current language or in an old one. An old language can certainly have its place in liturgies, but I think people should be able to understand what it is about. How do you see this and how do the oriental Christians see this?
