Windows on the Life of Jesus – The Windows on the Life of Jesus project was conceived in early 2019 when Diana Johnson suggested to me in a Church Council meeting that I use our church’s stained-glass windows to present the gospel to our children during Vacation Bible School. She remembered that Rev. Dr. Larry Pace, a beloved former pastor, had done this effectively during his ministry with Abingdon Baptist. As I considered and followed her suggestion, I thought that a sermon series on these beautiful windows would also be good for us all.
Starting on Mother’s Day Sunday 2019, we paused to better appreciate the story told by our windows. I have worked along with Peggy Johnson to prepare a book which documents our windows through photographs, information about the dedication of each window, and a synopsis of each sermon in the Windows on the Life of Jesus series. It is our prayer that, as you enjoy the beautiful pictures and corresponding reflections in this book, you will find your faith strengthened and renewed through a look into the life of Jesus.
We have prepared an initial printing of 200 copies of Windows on the Life of Jesus. The book is in an 8 ½ x 11 inch. hardcover format with full-page glossy photographs of the windows. The cost will be $20 per book, and it can be shipped for $5 per copy.
If you would like to purchase one or more copies of Windows on the Life of Jesus, you may click on this link Windows on the Life of Jesus or contact Trina in the church office. This book will make a lovely and unique Christmas gift for family and friends.
A church with a world mission and a world program in association with the Lebanon Baptist Association, Baptist General Association of Virginia, Southern Baptist Convention, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and Baptist World Alliance.
