The stain-glass windows that line our church walls transform the some times muggy shine from the Hollywood sun into a bright display of color. The range of hues and shades mirror the diverse congregation, each bringing something distinct to our St. Stephen’s family.



Every family, city, and church is different and has its own style. I am always fascinated with the stain-glass that inhabits each church I visit. This picture, taken by David Hawbaker, of me admiring one such window in Blackfoot, Idaho. Each congregation reflected in the glass.
