Few aspects of modern worship are as often mocked as lighting. Frequent comments range from “What is this? A rock ‘n’ roll concert?” to “You all are going to hell!”*
But I would contend that the lighting is very important, as it helps to create an atmosphere in which (most) people are able to focus on God, not themselves and not those around them. To the people people who argue that a fully lit sanctuary is more holy or at the very least more appropriate for the solemnity of a church service, answer me this: how lit do you think church services were in the first through to nineteenth centuries?
