LIVING WORD’S STAINED GLASS WINDOW
The stained glass window in the front of the church reflects our call to the people
of God in this place. The blue field of the central cross is the Advent color for hope.
Living Word was born in “hope” on the first Sunday of Advent in 1981. Imposed on
the blue cross is the Greek “Chi Rho” which are the first two letters in the name
The staff of the “Chi Rho” extends to the bottom of the window and forms the roots
of the vine, which is Jesus Christ. The roots remind us that we are rooted and
grounded in the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ.
The four green leaves symbolize our life in Christ in the world. Four is the biblical
number for the world and green is the color of life. Christ is the vine and we are
the branches. Together in Him, we bear the fruits of faith. The window stands as
a symbol of Christ, the Living Word, in the world.
