Subject/Title of Window: Hands Folded in Expectation

Brief Description of Subject: From "The Life of St. Paul," booklet.
The fifth window on the right side of the church: The Christian cannot serve two masters, i.e., both God and mammon. "Ye cannot drink of the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table and of the table of devils." (I Corinthians 10:21). The cup of the Lord is, of course, the Communion Chalice and Host. Behind it, the "cup of devils" contains a serpent, symbol of evil. Bottom -- Paul's sermon at Antioch contains the story of John the Baptist prophesying the coming of Christ, "I am not he. But, behold there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose." (Acts 13:25) Hands are folded expectantly.

This window was given to the glory of God by members and friends of Saint Paul in memory of loved ones.

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
