In one of the new members intros, we touched on alternative service types. I am more of a traditionalist but, Taize seems so deep. As an RC moving toward the EC, I must admit a love for contemplative prayer, lots of times at a Eucharistic Adoration chapel. I have also heard and read about ECs in the northeastern states trying a gothic Eucharist. Celtic services and even the U2 Eucharist. I must say, I think those could be done tastefully. I think the Mega-Church stuff has crept into so many traditional churches. All fluff and feel good with no real depth of spirituality. But, I must say the Clown Eucharist done at Trinity Wall St EC, was way over the top.
