Recently, we discussed the roll of civil religion in the sanctuary – should there be national flags? But, what about just the style of the sanctuary. What should it look like? Where should the lecterns, if any, be placed? A table? a bible? What should be front and center?
I have my preference, but what is yours?
I will say that I do think that a sanctuary style plays a part in the audience’s participation, but I’ll leave it at that.
