First of a Series of 8:00am Outdoor Worship Services Based on the Wilderness Tabernacle

My chapel team this year at Virginia Seminary has created a six-week Friday morning series of worship services taking place in an outdoor model Tabernacle. The services are based on the regular OT readings from the Episcopal daily office lectionary, which each connect to the symbols and rites of Tabernacle worship. Each service lifts up a symbol or topos from the given lectionary readings and brings it to life within the imaginative world of the outdoor model. We do not think that this has been done before at VTS, and it sure to a topic of conversation.
