Have you ever wondered how the architecture of the temple and tent of meeting in the Old Testament fit into the worship of God? Have you ever wondered what that would mean for the church today?
Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah held the Architecture Conference in February of 2010, and featured Terry Johnson, Hughes Oliphant Old and architectural historian, David Gobel, speaking about the architectural setting of Christian Worship. The subtitle of the conference: Exploring the Intersection of Architecture, Theology, and Worship.
The messages by Old are insightful and very thought provoking. Gobel gives quite a bit of the historical basis for the architecture from cathedral to modern day church. You’ll be surprised to learn that most church architecture is created with a specific purpose other than practicality. Gobel gives us the why’s and when’s of how churches have been designed.
