My summer tour of the Good Shepherd Atrium is coming to a close! I thought today I would try to show you some pictures of the room so that you can see how all of the pieces fit together. I'm taking these pictures from my height so they can't be a real indication of how the room looks and feels to the children. But I wanted to sketch the broader layout for you. Bear with me as I try to get you oriented - I sometimes struggle with directions!
Shifting your gaze to the right gives you this view. The Good Shepherd works are just in front of you, infancy narratives are in the white shelves facing you (in the middle of the room), and the parables are behind.
Shifting your eyes once more to the right gives you this view. All of the works which tell about Jesus' last days, and his resurrection are straight ahead and the water source and clean up area are in the closet on the right.
If you walk straight into the room about halfway to the back wall (alongside the liturgical works) and look to the right you see this view of the prayer table, parables, the liturgical calendar, and the art area in the back corner of the room.
Moving even further toward the back wall and looking back gives you this view of the practical life shelves in the front and the works about Jesus' death and resurrection and the clean up area in the back of the picture.
Moving even further towards the far wall and turning around shows you this view of the liturgical calendar, chasubles and prayer table.
I hope this makes some sense! If you have any questions or if I missed something you wanted to see on the tour please let me know.
