Long Description:
Per the college website link , we learn:

The stained glass windows, designed and fabricated by Gordon Smith, reflect a modern development of the primitive form of this art. This style had its origins in early Christian paintings and drawings; later, it was adapted to stained glass window techniques. The artist has liberally interpreted this style in creating windows reflective of the age nearest to the New Testament, yet incorporating superior contemporary techniques, blending time into one continuing stream — always past and present and future.

The upper windows on the East portray events from the era of the law. On the West representive events from the New Testament are recorded. Each window below the balcony designates one of the twelve Apostles.

All of the windows have a symbolic border. The muted grays, lavenders, and blues of the outer border denote the Christian's struggle against adversity. The red inner border symbolizes the intensity of the Christian's faith since the twelve Apostles took the Word of Jesus and began to spread it through the world. The clear glass signifies the future, which Christians as dedicated followers of Jesus can see clearly through the eyes of faith.

In addition to the sanctuary windows, each of the corner windows, located in the stairs, is a symbolic representation of one of four events in the life of Christ which are unique in Him as the Son of God.

Above the Great Doors are two windows, one for Moses as the foremost prophet of Israel, one for Paul as the major Apostle to the Gentiles.


The gallery contains many photos of the main chapel windows, but not yet all due to wanting best sunlight. Please add to the collection during your visit. The chapel is open for visitation almost every day if not hosting an event.
