This book by Anthony J. Mancuso and Caroline M. Thomas provides general principles for enhancing the interior of the worship space, with specific ideas and techniques. The Liturgy speaks to people in many ways, not always in words. One of the non-verbal communications that is part of liturgy is the environment in which it is celebrated. A good worship space focuses the attention of the worshipper, establishes the right mood, and supports prayer. The environment can express the mood of the season, draw attention to specific ideas in the church building, and focus on particular permanent or seasonal elements. This book gives general principles for enhancing the interior of the worship space with plenty of practical ideas and techniques, and even a few tips on what to consider when building or remodeling a space. Since the exterior environment draws people in to the mystery to be celebrated inside, there are suggestions for outside enhancements as well. Photocopiable planning sheets make it easy to create in inspiring space. 80 pages.
