The environment of our worship spaces gives expression to the deeper realities of our seasons and feasts and of other particular occasions, e.g., weddings, funerals, services of reconciliation or lament, anniversaries, that gather people in for prayer. The environment speaks to us, draws us into these deeper realities.
We will feature examples of environment for worship, practical considerations for art and environment ministers, and other reflections. Please send us your ideas and examples in the form of digital images to: email@example.com.
