Scale weighing justice and mercy
Above is the new chancel window in the Chapel of St. Timothy & St. Titus, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri, to be featured in a subsequent article.


"In your light do we see light." Psalm 36:9

People are windows.
The light they shine
is not from within
but from above.
The clearest window
lets in the most light.
He was from above,
the Source of Light.
We look not at a window
but through a window.
There we see the Light
 that lightens our lives.
Paul Emmel
