The vine
Beauty is a gift of God
Aristotle

 

On Pentecost Sunday, June 4, 2006, the congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Ascension, Northfield, Illinois dedicated these stained glass windows to the glory of God, to the memory of loved ones, and to the inspiration of all who worship here, now and in generations to come.

I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me you will bear fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.

                  JOHN 15:5

Linking all of these windows together is the grapevine, abundant with grapes, reminding us that only in Christ will we grow and flourish, bear good fruit and have fullness of life.
