The two new rose windows to be placed in the North and South transepts complete the cycle of stained glass in the new OLR Church.

The existing windows were created by the famed Wilbur Burnham studios in the 1940’s. These new windows are to an original design by Matthew Alderman and Mark Speake of Lynchburg Stained Glass. They incorporate Alderman’s design with elements from the older Burnham windows—keeping the golden “alabaster” effect of the existing transept lancet windows.

The window to be installed in the South transept (the right side as you face the high altar) commemorates the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost with recurrent symbols of water, fire and the descending dove. The other window portrays symbols for the Holy Trinity. GOD “is not” Father, Son or Holy Spirit. GOD “is” the source of Being and “IS” Father Son AND Holy Spirit.

We hope these new windows will be a source of inspiration and enlightenment for years to come.
