Brief Description of Subject: Window by Kirk Thompson III that was designed to let light into the sacristy and to be consistent in design with the nave windows.

Medallion in left panel is a symbol for CHRIST that comes from John 1:29 "the next day John (the Baptist) saw Jesus coming towards him and said "Behold, the LAMB of God, who takes away the sin of the world". The lamb is carrying the VICTORY BANNER -- victory over death.

Medallion in the right panel is the symbol for PEACE that comes from the Old Testament story of Noah. St. Augustine wrote that in Christian Doctrine "perpetual peace is indicated by the OLIVE BRANCH which the DOVE brought back with it when it returned to the ark."

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
