Depending on who what and where, the manner in which the person/s leading worship will offend some of the people involved.
I would dare say that inherintly the true Gospel message is offensive, in some respect, to everyone. It should be because it is acultural.
ex. - take the bibles view on sex, in the cultural perspective of the western world it is horribly oppresive, however in the middle east it is freeing. Conversely look at forgiveness, in the western world forgiveness if freeing, but in the middle East it is oppresive.
Do try to be polite. The intent here is to be challenged by what others have to say to us about worship and liturgy, rather than to poke at people unnecessarily.
Try phrasing these things in a way which will invite others to participate... some of the silent lurkers have a large body of experience and familiarity with the literature and with scripture, and we don't want to chase them away.
