Looking for Stained Glass Artistry

We're commissioning two small windows.  But we don't have an artist.  Anyone have experience?  Or is there an Angie's List for church furnishings?

Being Part of God's history

It is with tremendous pride that I can now say, after celebrating this afternoon, that I was the Senior Warden when St. James Episcopal Church on the Parkway in Minneapolis, and that I was there, when St. James recorded the first same-sex marriage in its 80 year history. Its true, as a Senior Warden, my offcial role in such an event is non-existent. The formal approval of the Vestry isn't needed, there is no mechanism in place that I am aware of for the Wardens and/or Vestry to somehow weigh…

Do Bricks and Mortor Make or Break the Faith?

So, our buildings on the St. James Episcopal Church on the Parkway have been vexing us for nearly a decade now, in small and big ways, while simultaneously endearing us as the home base of our faith and sprititual work. This hardly makes St. James unique of course, but I thought it still a worthy blog topic,even if I am ultimately only talking to myself (see previous post from June). There have been a wide range of conversations at St. James, from simple musings of humble parishioners to…
