Stained Glass Booklet (Sept. 2016)

A full color booklet about Zion’s stained glass windows is nearing completion.

Sadly, the designer of the Windows, Caecilie Kelm, has passed away this August. Luckily, or perhaps as a result of Divine intervention, team member Carolyn Bachman was able  to connect with Caecilie this last year allowing us to learn more about the Windows and the designer’s thoughts about each window. A video has been made of this interview and is in the church library.

Here’s a sample of the booklet:




Did you know that the creator / designer of Zion’s 16 stained glass windows has been interviewed at Zion in December, 2015? Yes, Caecilie Kelm was interviewed by Carolyn Bachman and Deb Wold. The video is on DVD explaining the symbolism found in each of the 16 windows. Thanks to Bruce Edwards for this production.
