Subject/Title of Window: Bringing Faith, Hope and Love

Brief Description of Subject: The three faceted glass windows on the side of the nave symbolize faith, hope, and love, the products of the Holy Spirit’s work in the people of the church. The window on the left includes the cross, a traditional symbol of faith. In gold tones, the cross illuminates the globe of the earth, thus linking earth to God above. Hope symbolized by an anchor, is shown in the middle window. Green, the traditional color for hope dominates the background in the form of a green tree of life. The letters LOVE spaced in a square were first designed thus by the artist Robert Indiana. From the blue of God’s love a river of gold and orange pours down to earth. Designer Benoit Gilsoul.

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.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
