Faces of Faith
PROCLAIMERS OF THE FAITH
The stained glass windows in
the Sanctuary at Faith Lutheran
have been particularly designed to complement
the colonial architecture of Faith Church.
The technique of color and at is borrowed in part from the 14th century glass artists.

The Abraham Window shows
Abraham's near sacrifice of his son, Isaac,
and the ram caught in the thicket. Genesis 22
Some time later, God tested Abraham.
He said to him, "Abraham!"
"Here I am" he replied.
Then God said "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."
Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son, Isaac. When he had cut enough wood
for the burnt offering he set out....
Abraham took the wood for the offering and placed it on his son Isaac and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together.
Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, "Father?"
"Yes, my son?" Abraham replied
"The fire and wood are here," Isaac said, but
where is the lamb for the burnt offering?"
Abraham replied "God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." And the two of them went on together. When they reached the place God had told him about Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord called out to him for heaven.
"Abraham, Abraham!" "Here I am, he replied
"Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said "Do not do anything
to him. Now I know that you fear God because you have not withheld from me, your son, your only son."
Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide.
And to this day it is said
On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.
Ukrainian Icon for Pentecost
"If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus
from the dead is living in you,
He who raised Christ from the dead
will also give life to your mortal bodies
through his Spirit, who lives in you."
