Subject/Title of Window: Blessed Trinity Mission Statement

Brief Description of Subject: The glass for the window is mouth blown Fremont antique glass that was made to order. It is called mouth blown “flash” glass meaning it has layers of color and translucency which create shading and richness of depth. Much of the glass was chosen to diffuse the light. It is also painted and kiln-fired to achieve the delicate watercolor effect. The glass was carefully chosen to create a movement of color and shading. The design reflects both the rootedness of the earth and the light and lightness of the Spirit. The window reflects the Blessed Trinity mission statement. As the Father does, we welcome and support everyone who enters this faith community. The window design depicts a form that is rooted in the earth yet reaching out and embracing both the Spirit and those who come to worship in the faith community. We are a faithful, prayerful family that worships God is reflected in the window form reaching up its branches, wings and arms to the light which halos the adjacent cross, indicating the holiness of Jesus’ selfless act on the cross as well as reminding us of our calling.
