General Convention 2006 was held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. The daily worship services took place in Exhibit Hall C, a 98,000 square foot space with a seating capacity of 8,000. The videos each based on the daily themes were projected onto screens erected on either side of the platform containing the altar.

The videos were projected three times during the service
during the procession, during the Eucharist, and for the closing. Nine images were selected by the Worship Design Committee and the Office of General Convention and used as fixed images projected during the daily liturgy when the videos were not being viewed. Live music was provided for the service and to accompany the videos. Since General Convention, music has been added to the videos. The intent of the videos was to create an atmosphere for meditation and reflection using visual images and music.
