This is the 4th of 7 stained glass windows made for this church. It is called:
As was said before, all the windows were designed with the congregation in mind, trying to include everyone with ideas. Our church is a very musical and praying church. The idea was brought up to do a music themed window.
With that in mind much praying went into as what to do.
This is the result.
Designed from an old country gospel song, a favorite of some of the congregation, I Saw The Master In The Morning.
Lyrics can be found just about anywhere. Some of the lyrics were used for the design.
” I Saw The Master In The Morning”
In Short of the versus
The sun beginning to rise,
White clouds across Heaven
Removing shadow of night
He kissed the roses
Gently touched the mountains
Breeze caught the lyrics
Whispered over the mountains
Pretty white lilies unfurled
Across valley and hills
Shown on river like diamonds
The bright ray of sun broke the heavens
Bowed in light of His presence
Peace filled my soul
He came to wake up the world
These are parts of the lyrics used to design this window.
The artist tried to incorporate this in the window and with a lot of prayer.
Hope you enjoy.
6. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
13. I can do all things through Chris which strengthens me.
The little Dove given so much to do throughout history. Use to represent peace, love, used by Noah to see if the flood was over. Came back with the olive branch. Used at weddings, even at sporting events world wide as a sign of unison and peace.
Most of all, the dove is used to represent the, HOLY SPIRIT, when Jesus was baptized. The little bird has a lot to do and so much power.
This is the artist’s rendition of the Holy Spirit. Very powerful window. Bold colors, and strong meanings. Designed listening to bold music, Pearl Jam and rock and roll.
The purple border is the color of kings, for the King of Kings. The bright sun is God. The red rays represent the Son Jesus, followed by the 12 yellow rays as the apostles. The wreath circling is an olive branch and in the dove’s mouth as the sign from Noah
The fire color are the power colors as seen as the power of the HOLY SPIRIT.
The Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Everyone loved the pastor’s window in the church so much, they wanted more.
It was asked of the artist to do stained glass window for all the window. Little did they know, that the Pastor’s Window was first one he ever did.
How trusting the congregation is.
Much thought and many prayers later, he decided to try and get everyone of the church members and the Pastor involved.
So the question was brought up to each and all, what do you want to see?
And the response was great. Each had their ideas.
With that being said they were all designed from their ideas.
Just not conventional church windows. Bright and cheery, instead of dark. The old ancient window were very beautiful but very dark.
Started as the Holy Grail with the Crown of the King of Kings
Everyone likes different things. Trying to please all.
Thus this is called The Holy Grail Window.
Designed while listening to Big Band music.
Just a classic beautiful window.
The old church in Patriot, Indiana never had stained glass windows.
All churches need stained glass windows if they want to stay connected to tradition.
Stained glass can find its roots in early Egyptian and Roman history.
Stained glass church windows are still around from the 4th and 5th centuries.
A member of the church after retiring, wanted a window, dedicated to the Pastor. Not a memorial, but dedicated in life.
The first of our new stain glassed windows was designed as a celebration to the Pastor. Wanting him to always be remembered and loved in this church.
We call it the Pastor’s window.
The red cross, is the blood of Jesus, given for our sins.
Where Jesus blood dropped, lilies grew.
We are a praying church, inspired by our Pastor.
The praying hands are there for that reason, they represent our Pastor.
The purple border, is a Kings color – for the King of kings. It is represented on all the windows. More to come.
The Pastors window was also designed while listening to music, as all of them were.
Crazy how much music can affect the thoughts of the artist.
This was designed listening to Beethoven`s Appassionata , and other classical pieces. You will see in the future how this is to be true.
Praying to the King of Kings
Our Pastor prays to the King of Kings. And now, so do I.
I was raised in a large city and a large church. I have worked in every state and major city throughout the country. I found the need and want for a slower, easier way of life, away from work.
Moving to Rising Sun, Indiana was like living in Mayberry. I came across this beautiful little church down the lane, to which my neighbor attended.
I went looking for a piano, my nephew could use for practice. They were kind enough to allow him to play anytime, which he did, even sleeping in the pews. I started attending every Sunday. My nephew would play for worship, with the Pastor, who also is an accomplished musician.
After attending week after week, I found this to be a place where I would like to worship as there is no denomination. They are a Christian in church and out – serving the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. No religion, just Christian.
They are nice, all the time, without judgement. They see no color or race. Just enjoy each other and are a joy to be near.
Pastor is sincerely one of the gentle, kind spirits of the world and is also the heart of the church. We as a congregation love him and his wife.
The church is about God`s love, sharing God`s love, being a Christian and living the life. Praying .
We love music and enjoy singing to praise Jesus.
We are a praying church.
Come pray with us, as there is power in numbers. Prayer is very strong and the way to talk to God. He will hear us and answer. I can`t tell you what happens when you pray but I can tell you what happens when you do not. I am a prayer warrior, and there is no better place for me to pray than this peaceful little church.
This is an old church, with a special aura, peace in Gods love.
Come pray and worship with us and feel the love of Jesus firsthand.
I love this church, we are a praying church, come pray with us.
