Worship should be about more than just the ears. Worship is enhanced when we're experiencing more than simply the spoken, read, and sung word. At its best, worship invites in the other senses as well, especially the eyes. Delia Halverson and Karen Appleby have written Creating Holy Spaces to help you make worship an exciting and meaningful visual experience.

The book contains suggestions for worship visuals tied to each Sunday of all three years of the Revised Common Lectionary. These visuals can be assembled on the altar, placed elsewhere in the sanctuary, or photographed to be used for projection. The weekly entries describe the readings for that Sunday and suggest visuals appropriate to each, creating a multi-sensory experience of worship bound up with the day's Lectionary theme. Also, the reader will find three appendixes that help with the planning and execution of visuals for each Sunday.

Thanks to a topical index and a scripture index, it is easier for those not using the Lectionary to also take advantage of the great ideas found here. Let Halverson and Appleby show you how to create balanced worship experiences each Sunday, while inspiring you to create your own unique holy spaces.
