BEYOND ILLUMINATION What makes lighting so appropriate for Houses of Worship isn’t simply illumination; it’s the ability to sculpt the light to create a mood and to build an atmosphere that fosters worship and breaks down barriers. Lighting helps the audience to focus; it can draw them in and remove the separation of the stage and the audience area. With proper lighting design, the setting can be as intimate as you desire. It can be upbeat, it can be solemn, or it can be neutral.
