This series from Marcia McFee's Worship Design Studio includes video sequences for online worship and full scripts that work whether you are in-person or not. There is a fee, but hardship rebates are available.
An early 6th century theologian described God as “beguiled by beauty.” The Creator was lured by a longing for beauty and so set in motion a world of immense diversity and goodness. We were made for this Divine Goodness. We were made inherently worthy, not by our “doing,” but by our simply being. All things are beautiful–not by a standard of “pretty” as seen by our eyes, but by an essence of sacred worth that is sensed by the spirit. This is the root and heart of compassion and justice. Practices of contemplation help us train our gaze to these deeper truths. In this worship series we will dwell with the God of Divine Goodness, deeply in love with us, and practice ways to return that love as we fall more deeply in love with creation and with one another.

This series is created to help you create a cohesive visual, and deeply spiritual, theme without doing a lot of image production work. But they are also in fully-scripted form for those of you doing non-video-based worship (i.e. phone, print only). A series about the theology of beauty and compassion is a perfect opportunity to offer beautiful imagery without the stress of creating it yourself.
