Date of Window: 1976

Subject/Title of Window: Resurrection

Brief Description of Subject: Jesus steps out of the tomb. Beams of light surround him and an angel is behind him. This window, illustrating the Resurrection of the Lord, was donated by Peg Race in memory of her husband Shelby E. Race. It was installed February 27, 1976 and dedicated Mar. 7, 1976. This window also has in all four corners the Greek letter Chi (X). Very early in church history, this became a symbol for Christ. This figure is repeated in the beams of light or glory streaming from the Risen Christ in the foreground. The figure of the Risen Christ is the central image in this window in shades of blue and white. These colors represent purity and holiness. Streams of light or glory are shown in yellows and golds. In the upper foreground is an angel shown in shades of gold. Presumably, this is the angel who spoke the words of the Scripture passage (Matthew 28:6): “He is not here, for he has been raised as he said...” Undoubtedly, this event is the very heart of the Christian message and the foundation of the Church. Artists Richard Hanley and Mark Taleba. Installation by Omnibus Studios, Okemos, MI.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
