St. Mark’s Changes Windows



By Natalie Strom

Coastal Breeze News has closely followed the Artists in Residence at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church for the past year regarding the amazing etched and stained glass windows made for the Advent and Epiphany seasons respectively.

As the Christian faith moves from the birth of Christ to the season of Epiphany, a time of celebration where the three wise men visit the baby Jesus, the etched glass windows will be removed and the stained glass windows made the year prior will be hung on January 8.

“Mary Pondering,” was inspired by these words: “Many come to look at my son’s face. Where will they go when they leave this place? Do they see enough to change their hearts? Do they trust enough to play their part?”

Shepherds came to gaze upon the face of Jesus, and soon the magi arrived to do the same. Mary’s hopes for her son, born of Immaculate Conception, carry on today as many still bask in the glow of his face and the faith they hold in the promise of Jesus Christ as their Savior.
