Catechetical Symposium and the liturgy

I am attending the Concordia Catechetical Symposium in Waukesha, WI. Our topic is The Liturgy and Contemporary Music. The discussion is quite good because there are many questions that are not asked in the whole "tradition" vs. "contempoary" debate.
Are the gifts of God being emphasized? Is it God's work or ours? Is it is focused on Christ? Do people see Jesus?
These are foundational questions for us to ask when looking at worship and then begin some good conversations and maybe a little debate.
More to come.
