The Seven Days of Creation
Six windows spell as in Hebrew from right to left bereshit “In the beginning…each window showing one of the six letters and the seventh one, because it is a day of rest.
 
Window III
Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together and let the dry land appear…let the earth put forth grass, herb yielding seed…and fruit. Wherein is the seed thereof after its kind…” In additional to seed bearing fruit and grain, it also shows that the lowliest weeds and plants are part of Gods great plan, and a tiny bit of the rays of the sun begin to appear to make life possible.

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
