Brief Description of Subject: The background color is blue which stands for the sky and it stands for heaven and heavenly love. At the top is the parable of the good and bad fishes. The parable of the good Samaritan is in the middle which deals with the nature of Christian love which is represented by oil and bandages. At the bottom is the parable of the sower and the seed.

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
