Trying Something New This Summer?
Ascension, Washington Crossing, is experimenting with worship-in-the-round this summer. What new things are you trying this season? Let us know in the comments.
One nice advantage of movable chairs instead of pews, Ascension has discovered, is the flexibility and creativity they provide. For the summer months, Ascension has redesigned its sanctuary layout to put worshippers in a circle around a central altar.
While the change initially took some getting used to (as in “Where’s my seat?”), comments now heard include: “It’s so much friendlier!” “I hear the other singing voices so much better.” “I can hear the prayers of the people more clearly.” “It makes a stronger sense of community.”
