Sometimes I use altarscapes as more of an intentional visual aid for my sermon. Sunday’s altar was a great example of this!
I opened the sermon with a story about these shells, as well eluded to white stoles throughout the Easter season towards the end of it.
I really wanted both the white stoles and shells to pop, so I covered the table in a royal purple fabric and put the stoles over it. Then I piled black sand on a tile and placed the shells there.
I stepped back and realized it needed something, so – as an afterthought – I brought in the tea lights. The light reflected really beautifully off of the glass and sand.
I like the way this came together. Click here to read the sermon!
