Project Description

Theme: THE FAMILY OF GOD

Scripture: “Look toward heaven, and number the stars.…So shall thy seed be.” (Genesis 15:5)

Features: Abraham and Sarah, the great father and mother of God’s Old Testament people, are standing on rocks, recalling the great test of Abraham’s faith when he prepared to sacrifice his only son Issac on a rock altar. God instead provided a ram for sacrifice, then reestablished his covenant with the family that would descend from Abraham and Sarah. The tent behind them reminds us of a nomadic people, who have no permanent home, but move from place to place.A scene in the lower window depicts a modern family gathered around a table for a meal, and reminds of us of the family of the Church, where the Lord’s Table is the focus of our common meals.

Dedication: November 19, 1981, in memory of Bertram and Madeline Willis, given by their daughter, Kathleen Craig, and her family.
