G Is For Glass


Baptistry Window, Coventry Cathedral
Designed by John Piper and made by Patrick Reyntiens



I am only showing one third of the window today.  I will show you more on another day.

The boulder in front of the window originates from a hillside at
Bethlehem and has been fashioned into a font.



Not far away is a quiet spot where candles can be lit 
and memories recalled.  I did that today.

Participating in ABC Wednesday

Happy Birthday, Mom.

That is one impressive window which looks to comprise a wall. Love the idea of a huge rock becoming a baptismal font, also. The colors here are delicious!

What a serene and beautiful one for G. So much grace in a place that also experienced so much devastation. Thank you for the gorgeous post.

So gorgeous. Was it there in 1998 when I visited? I don't recall it.

A beautiful pattern of color and glass. An inviting, moving and peaceful place. Lovely choice for theme.

Also Lauren, here is a little tip for capturing moon shots - use the "manual" setting on your mode selector. It helps.
