COLLISIONS

One Generation to the next

Posted by Tim Walter, 7 March 2012

Stain glass windows do very little for me. Sure, there is craftsmanship and it is an art to create but I have never understood the meaning or the purpose of them compared to a picture.

One Sunday morning one of our older members of the congregation spoke to the children about the history, the meaning, and the purpose of one of the stain glass windows in the church.

The story included the passing of someone's wife, the meaning of the art work, the Biblical message and the theology of it all. Not only were the children informed but I was too.

Generations coming together and Colliding in a way that benefited everyone.

Now stain Glass windows are ok i guess.... especially the one near the door in our church.
