Subject/Title of Window: His Leaf Also Shall Not Wither

Brief Description of Subject: There are 5 on the right and 5 on the left of the church. The windows in the sanctuary have an abstract-lancet design which evokes an image of the church in the world. The green represents the tree of life, the church. The red form in the center looks like a church building representing the Christ’s promise of everlasting life by His sacrificial Martrydom. The sun in the upper corners form rays shining down. An actual pair of green leaves are at the bottom, with one on each side of these windows. Psalm 1v3 “...his leaf also shall not wither whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Some artists, in their humility do things in error to show that only God is perfect in His creation. The blue represents water that sustains life, and also reminds us of our baptism.

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
