The Purpose of Art in the Church
Art in the church has changed a great deal over the years due largely to technology, but it’s purpose remains the same. Instead of painting beautiful murals on the ceiling or designing captivating stained-glass windows, we can now change a room’s look and feel at the push of a few buttons with lighting and projection. It’s cool and fascinating, but that’s not why we should do it. Gary Molander has a great article on this using Psalm 40.
Good word about Environmental Projection! You nailed it; that’s where the concept comes from…the heart and passion behind visual worship have held steadfast, just the technology changes. It’s not a show.
