From All Points #13: Worship & Tech

We look at the state of technology use in our churches and discuss how it might enhance worship as well as why it so often seems to feel disconnected from it.

One real value to screens in church. Our modern worship space had large white walls on either side of the reredos as part of its design. We mounted projectors on the ceiling. We began by projecting the words of the hymns. Most worshippers like the letters projected in a large readable font. Without faces buried in a book, the singing was better. Special liturgies were also projected, rather than asking people to flip back and forth in the BCP. If there was a theme for the Sunday, we found a picture that fit to use when nothing else was projected.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
