Building Name: St. Thomas Episcopal Church

Studio Name: Willet Hauser Architectural Glass

City: Battle Creek

Window Shape: 3 (arched)

Subject/Title of Window: Prayer for All Conditions of Mankind

Brief Description of Subject: Four windows in the church entrance contain images that represent various faiths and nations praying together for unity and world peace. Two companion windows are inscribed "We pray for thy holy church universal in unity of spirit in the bond of peace." The entrance windows underscore the spirit of religious freedom and human rights associated with Battle Creek, the former home of abolitionist and women's rights activist Sojourner Truth, Seventh-day Adventist founders Ellen and James White, and the Underground Railroad station operated by Quaker Erastus Hussey. The same concern for social justice and community cooperation is reflected in many outreach programs of St. Thomas Episcopal Church today.

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
