Friday I drove to St. Louis for another funeral. The service was held in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church early in the morning, and the morning light filled the church with a colorful glow through the stained glass windows.

The windows reminded me of patchwork quilts, and I especially liked how the small symbols were intermingled with the blocks of color — each different, each one with a special meaning that was unique to this church and community. After the service, I happened to met a member of the church who helped to design the windows, and he explained how the symbols were selected.
