Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages is a Lutheran church in the Atlanta area. My husband's step-father is the pastor there, and has been for several years. Ever since we began dating (almost 9 years ago) I've visited this church for worship when we're in town. I've been in that sanctuary too many times to count. Yet not until a recent trip to Atlanta did I see this piece of art.
Randy, Brett's step-father, asked me to take a few pictures of a stained glass piece that was constructed by the founding members of the congregation. I was amazed at its size, and fascinated with the meaning behind it. I can picture all of them working together, piece by piece, to fashion this breath-taking artwork.

While there, I also took advantage of the empty sanctuary and took a few shots of the alter and the other stained glass works of art. I love the natural light shining in on the alter in this first image.

This is so weird that you did this. During the worship service of my bible study I've been staring at the beautiful stained glass window/wall, thinking of what a great picture it would make. You've now inspired me to actually make a point and go and take some shots of it and see what comes out. I love your shots, esp the sanctuary.
