Brief Description of Subject: The open purse indicates dedicated support with substance. The circle is the symbol of eternity. The seven small circles represent the days of the week-dedicated times daily. The cross at the top indicates supreme dedication-gift of life.

The altar aflame symbolizes the Old Testament sacrificial system by which God’s presence and forgiveness was sought. The best of the flock was reserved for this ritual. Christ has replaced the sacrificial system for Christians, but the demand for dedication and Christian sacrifice are ever present.

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
