      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. When evaluating a new worship space, it is important to consider where the eye is drawn.

    Most traditional churches were designed to be Third Places.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Most traditional churches were not designed to be Third Places. Third Places are social environments where people gather outside of their home and work, such as coffee shops, parks, or community centers. While churches do provide a gathering space for religious activities, their primary purpose is to serve as a place of worship and spiritual connection rather than a casual social setting. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Many traditional church buildings are rather imposing from the outside, and mostly are designed to look beautiful on the inside (stained glass windows, etc.).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Traditional church buildings are often designed to be imposing from the outside and visually appealing on the inside. This is evident in their architectural features such as stained glass windows, intricate designs, and grand entrances. The purpose of these designs is to create a sense of awe and reverence for worshippers and to symbolize the importance and sacredness of the space. Therefore, the statement that many traditional church buildings are rather imposing from the outside and designed to look beautiful on the inside is true.

    Increasingly, many churches are finding ways to create seating that is more in a circle, rather than in straight rows. This pattern helps to communicate that the building is made for corporate prayer, with people being aware of one another, rather than a crowd looking up to a distant God.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Many churches are adopting a seating arrangement that is more circular rather than in straight rows. This change in seating pattern is aimed at fostering a sense of community and togetherness among the congregation. By creating a circle, people are able to see and interact with one another, promoting a sense of awareness and connection. This seating arrangement also signifies that the church is focused on corporate prayer and emphasizes the idea that everyone is equal and united in their worship, rather than a hierarchical structure with a distant God.
