The kicker is that nonliturgical Protestants have accused us Catholics of "empty ritual" for ages. Now if these churches start playing liturgy it really will be empty ritual - because while they might admire the symbolism, they don't believe in its power. But I suppose any attempt to understand liturgy is a step in the right direction. At least they are beginning to realize that the apostolic church was a sacramental church.

I've noticed in my own area how Baptist churches are now lighting Advent wreaths and having "Tenebrae" services (or the nearest thing) at Holy Week.  God will probably use these humble elements to convert many of them.
