The beauty of the liturgy and the lack of information on Orthodoxy in Francis Schaeffer's "How then should we live?" My husband loved that book, but it just glosses over the Orthodox church altogether. This lead to investigating the text of the liturgy, then attending a liturgy.
My husband and I are musicians. We have played in many church "worship teams." The truth is that a talented line-up of musicians in a worship team aren't really worshiping God all that much. Because it takes work to play well in any setting. Worship simply can't take place when you are changing keys at the last second because the vocalist doesn't like hitting "x" note in the song, when you have to improvise seamless transitions between songs, or when the pastor decides he wants you to change the set list to match his sermon of the day, and you also play for a team that plays multiple sets for multiple services. We would play the same song sets for up to 3-5 services in a single day. We weren't worshiping God and enjoying the service between performances, we were EATING and going to the bathroom because we had been at church ALL DAY. The worship team is always there a few hours before performing so they can do sound check, run thru the set list a couple times, and tune their instruments. My mother thinks that a team will have "the anointing" when they perform well. The truth is that they are approaching it as professionals when they perform well. Because although one can worship with their talents. Playing for an audience is a performance, and any musician worth their salt will treat it as a performance, and not worship because it isn't about the musicians worshiping, it is about the congregation worshiping.
We could enjoy the liturgy in a way that we could never enjoy protestant services. It was refreshing. No sudden key changes for show, no untuned musical instruments, people weren't wanking for attention. The words weren't meant to pull at heartstrings and play your sympathies. It was so simple, it was so complex and multifaceted, it was simply beautiful.
