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