Drawing People Heavenward
I just got an email from a friend of mine who I've helped along the path of environmental projection and going deeper with visuals. He said "In a time when some churches are painting walls black and focusing light on the stage, God seems to be leading us to add more light and color to the whole environment... drawing attention Heavenward."
What a great physical reminder that what we do in our services says so much, without saying a word.
It's exactly why cathedrals had imagery and Story on the ceilings.
Sometimes I worry that we are missing out on beautiful and powerful opportunities to point our congregation to a deeper place. Often times we simply "light people on stage".
So think about that this Sunday when using lighting and visuals. See how these tools can be used to point to God....NOT to just point at people on stage.
