360º view of Saint Paul's Sanctuary
Thanks to Caitie Finlayson for creating this 360º interactive view of our Sanctuary. She created it originally as part of her PhD dissertation on the Geography of Worship Space using Saint Paul's and other sanctuaries to talk about how space influences the sense of one's worship. She and her husband Ian are now members at Saint Paul's and I asked her if she would recreate it so we could use it in our Foundations of Worship class that just finished up where parents and their children were learning together about worship. Caitie will receive her doctorate from FSU this Spring.
