Stained Glass Window Sermon Series

The stained glass window of the Adam W. Miller Chapel is a significant part of the worship atmosphere for the School of Theology. This window encasing symbols of theological importance was designed by the seminary faculty in 1974. While the seminary community has changed many times since its installation in June 1976, a perennial question might be asked, “What do these images continue saying to each generation of students, faculty, staff, and worshippers who gather in this space?”

Dr. David Sebastian, seminary dean, sought to answer the question recently through a preaching series entitled, “The Stained Glass Window Sermon Series.” Sebastian invited the 2013 seminary faculty to deliver a sermon “based on the key words and images portrayed in the Miller Chapel stained glass window.” The seminary community is pleased to offer both the text and audio recordings of these sermons. This current faculty offers these sermons in gratitude to their colleagues of nearly 40 years past. We also offer them to the wider faith community as a means of dialogue, worship, and praise to God through his Son, Jesus Christ.
