From the first light of creation to
a vision beyond the end of time,
“Like Stars Appearing” tells the
story of God’s relationship
with humankind as depicted in the
new stained glass windows of St.
George’s Episcopal Church in
Dayton. Each window depicts a
specific figure or “saint” -
through whom God has worked.
By combining their stories, and
them in chronological context, the
book tells a sweeping and epic
tale. From Abraham and Moses to
Jesus Christ himself, the foundation
of the Christian faith unfolds. As
history marches onward we meet
characters from each century of the
church from Augustine to Patrick to
Joan of Arc to C.S. Lewis.
The final window, ”For All the Saints”
depicts the stars of heaven
representing saints yet to come.
popular hymn asks the question:
“Who are these like stars
appearing, these, before God’s own
throne who stand?” This book
answers the question with a tribute
to remarkable figures in the
history of the world who answered
God’s call in their lives. We
invite you to “walk the story
faith” in person or through this
book. Available at the Parish
Kiosk. Online ordering will
be available soon.
