Project Description

Theme: CHRISTIAN CHARITY

Scripture: “This woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.” (Acts 9:36)

[See also Acts 19:40 that tells about her being raised from death by the apostle Peter.]Features: These words were written about a disciple in Joppa named Dorcas (Greek) or Tabitha (Aramaic), a woman of great compassion and kindness. The upper part of window shows a woman bringing food to hungry children. Dorcas was raised from death by the apostle Peter who was summoned by her grieving friends, who showed him all the clothing she had made during years of service. The lower picture in the window shows the reunion with her friends. (Acts 19:40). In the center of the window is a representation of Christ. The flowering vine is a reference to John 15:1, “I am the true vine.” Christ holds the communion cup, through which the fruit of the vine becomes the symbol of God’s gift of Himself.

Dedication: Given in memory of Mrs. Editha Towne Green.
