We celebrated Reign of Christ Sunday in church this morning. I preached from John & Revelation (sermon here) so I thought it would be appropriate to bring in an Alpha and Omega as visual aids on the altar. A friend of mine cut them for me out of PVC-wood-type-stuff (or something like that – wood worker I am not) so they are durable enough to store and use in the future!
Gold fabric represents royalty
Alpha/Omega coincides with the scripture
Commentaries on the texts that I preached from bookends the letter
Christ candle sits in the center of the altar
I created the “steps” under the fabric using bibles and blocks from the toy collection in my office (ha!).
What do you think? I’m still learning about altar design, especially when it comes to using it subtly in traditional worship …
