ILLUMINATE | shining a light on art, liturgy & worship Hosted by Stephen Proctor The landscape of modern worship in the Western Church is ever-evolving. Art is making a comeback & creativity is beginning to thrive in many forms & varied expressions. But at what point does it begin to feel like a show? Is there a line between inspiring engagement & consumeristic entertainment? Does form matter? Our sacred spaces have been consumed by technology & concert-style production. This has become a driving force in the emotion of our experiences. But there's a movement happening. Many churches are recovering & integrating ancient liturgies & sacramental practices into their modern worship services. As you can imagine, this is creating both exciting opportunities as well as challenging tensions that pastors & artists are trying to navigate. This movement serves as the backdrop for the ILLUMINATE podcast – formerly known ALT { art x liturgy x technology } In this space, I have honest conversations with fellow artists, liturgists, & pastors about their own journey through deconstruction. We'll talk about what their reconstructed faith looks like today. My hope is that as you listen to these stories, you'll be inspired & challenged to explore deeper & more meaningful expressions of worship, creativity, & spirituality. Welcome to ILLUMINATE. ____________________________________________ ILLUMINATE is hosted by Stephen Proctor, an experience designer, projection artist & visual liturgist who uses projection technology to illuminate sacred spaces.
