Window Views: Colored Church Windows


“Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it."
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

On a recent drive Hubs and I took a drive around the neighborhoods that border our city park. These windows lined one side of a local church. I can only imagine the colors that reflect on the walls inside. I'm thinking on a bright sunny day that might be quite beautiful although a little bit distracting during the sermon. :)

Oh I can just imagine what it must look like with the sun shining through. Magical :)

I agree with Thom. I am sure theses glass windows are a lovely addition to the inside lighting.

It must be a pretty sight when the sun shines.

The colors may not be distracting during the sermon - it might even keep the old men and teenagers awake. Great post.

churches and stained glass windows just seem to go together. These are beautiful.

A kaleidoscope of colors is what I think it creates when sun hits those windows.

Love brick buildings.

Carletta,

These are very unusual, and I can imagine - very beautiful with the sun shining through.

How pretty! I bet you are right about the inside color. Glorious!

I think I would have to visit that church just to see! (I just realized I forgot to comment on this post...) I don't think I have ever seen windows like those.

I've never seen stained glass done like this before, but I agree, it must be a pretty sight on a bright day! Nice find!

Isn't it amazing the effect you can achieve just by using coloured panes, instead of clear glass?
Lovely shots, Carletta.

As pretty as the windows are, I would love to see the rest of the church. Excellent photos, Carletta! Your frame color is perfect.

I agree, Carletta! But the windows panes are gorgeous! Happy Window Views! Come by on Thursday for a Yard Art meme... :)

Those are beautiful...the distractions would be the right kind of distractions...maybe?

Pretty!
Hopefully the sun doesn't shine through until late afternoon.
