Over the past two decades, the church has sought to incorporate technology into its worship services in ways that mimic modern society; professional audio consoles, stage lighting, projection screens, and theatrical sets are now customary. Because how people experience sacred space forms their views about it, what technical artists do in practice also shapes the congregation’s beliefs about God.
This week, we welcome Dr. Josiah Way to the podcast. Dr. Way shares the theology behind why we do church the way we do church. From worship to audio, lighting, video – the history behind creative arts.
