We have new, absolutely beautiful, stained glass windows in our four sanctuary doors. Sunday we had a blessing of these windows, these sacred pieces of art:
"... in His great love for us the eternal God has taken on human flesh and joined Himself to His own creation. Heaven and earth are now filled with His glory and He uses the things of this world to bring us His blessing. "He has made everything beautiful in its time" so that we may behold the beauty of the Lord and inquire in His holy temple. (Ecclesiastes 3:11;(Psalm 27:4) It is fitting, then, that these windows be sanctified by Word and prayer for use in the Lord's house. (from the Lutheran Service Book Agenda)
These windows are given in memory of our brother in Christ, Terry Lampton. They light up the room as he certainly did.
