There is something to be said for worship practices that are physical, visceral and teachable to others. There is a kind of synchrony between music, gesture and brain going on here that does generate a sense of unity within the assembly and some sort of communion with the Divine, however that is understood. Re-linking people, earth, and the Divine is what religion (re-ligio, re-link) has always been about. The experience of the "re-link" or the "sync up" may be a good thing in itself regardless of the textual framing of the experience. If the textual framing is also generating something good-- something that speaks from and promotes such re-linking interpersonally, infrapersonally and transpersonally, that seems to be a good thing, too.
