All God's Children Love the Lamb of God

Worn Stained Glass Window of the Lamb of GodSt. Jacobs Lutheran Church in Anna is a lovely church and has a wonderful collection of stained glass windows. The collection is one of the most diverse and numerous collections that I have found. This simple window with the Lamb of God has the best story however.

This window was located in the lady’s restroom, back in the day when the lady’s-room came with a basinet instead of a changing table. The room also served as a refuge for those mothers who’s little one became fussy. If you look you can see where the children over the years have worn down the stain as they found comfort in petting the Lamb.

Look for more post featuring the windows of this church in upcoming post.
