Why is the lectern used in a church?
The Lectern is used in a church so that theEucharistic ministers or Parishioners can come up and read passages from the Bible. Another word for the Lectern is the Pulpit. The lectern is a type of stand used to support a bible so that it can be read without someone having to hold it, the pulpit is different, it is a raised platform from which a minister preaches.
Balancing Quality With Cost When Finding a Lectern?
A critical question you have to ask when looking for a lectern is what the lectern will be used for. The answer to this question will determine many important factors that will go into getting the best deal. For example, if the lectern is going to be stationary and used in an informal setting, then the appearance of the lectern doesn’t matter so much. That means you could get a used lectern from a school or business surplus sale, or find some cheap lecterns on the Internet. Since the quality doesn’t matter very much in this scenario, you can save a lot of money by not buying something that is fancier than what you need. Unlike buying most other pieces of furniture, a lectern can have a certain level of mobility. If your lectern is going to be moved around from place to place as part of a traveling event, then factors like size and sturdiness come into play. These factors affect your bottom line in the long run, not just the short run, because of the reoccurring labor and time costs of getting everything set up for your event. A small lectern on wheels might take minutes to set up, while a large, heavy lectern without wheels could take an hour or more. After setting up your lectern a few hundred times or more, the time costs really start to add up, and can easily amount to a higher cost than the lectern itself, which is why transport considerations for a lectern are so critical. Another cost that a lot of people don’t think about when considering a lectern is how a microphone will be integrated. A lectern with no microphone support will tend to be less expensive because you aren’t paying for a microphone, but if a microphone is going to be used, you should consider that cost as well. A hardwired microphone means that inside of the lectern there is some circuitry for a microphone that is not easily removed or replaced from the lectern. While this type costs less in the short-run, in the long-run having a faulty microphone replaced can cost a lot. The best choice for a lectern that will be used often for large groups over time is a lectern with a microphone that is not hardwired so the replacement costs are lower if the microphone goes out.
