Design Concepts:

  • Movement of wind and spirit.
  • Breath of life.
  • "Our God, strong and gentle." 
  • God's Spirit within us, moving into and within the community.
  • Fire of divine love, never extinguished.  
  • Dove, birds.
  • Interaction with nature as an interaction with God.

 Sanctuary Windows, six 2'-4" x 8'-4"  St. Columban is located in a small town with a rural feel; rolling hills, a beautiful river and many trees. Nature became the underlying theme for all the stained glass windows.  As we talked about the varied qualities of trees, we started to see parallels in religious life.  Thus trees became the theme for the six rectangular sanctuary windows.
