The problem with tradition...  
In traditional practices, things are often not done with their origins and true meaning in mind, but rather, things are done because, "traditionally, that's the way it's done."

And then, when someone outside the ritual is asked to respond, well, that's pretty ritualized too.

Sure, you may have picked the color scheme and read the proper passages, but did you choose your own ideas?

from the "Lizzie" comic strip ....
Adult: Lizzie ... don't you remember me?!

Lizzie: No.

Adult: I'm your aunt Betty!

Lizzie: I don't believe you. May I see some I.D.?

Adult: You were the flower girl at my wedding!

Lizzie (Examining I.D.): I remember a bride at my flower ceremony ... but she was much thinner.
