Project Description

Theme: CHRIST IN PROPHECY

Scripture: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)

Features: Depiction of Old Testament prophet Isaiah. Above Isaiah is a medallion of the hand of God in a field of red, the color of sacrifice. The red staff in the hand of the prophet represents the presence and authority of God among his people. In the lower window, an angel proclaims with trumpet the good news that the Messiah will come. The single star in the upper portion, signifies the monotheistic insight of the Old Testament: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.” (Deuteronomy 6:4) Three stars in the lower portion of the window represent the Trinitarian insight of the New Testament: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Dedication: A memorial to Maude Bartling.
