The Transfiguration Window

This pair of windows also went in during Project 81 (the 1981 sanctuary renovation) and was crafted by Botti Studios in Evanston. As the plaque says, the Transfiguration window was donated by Albert and Jeanette Schey, in memory of Joachim T. and Martha A. Ruesch. The Ruesches were one of this church’s founding families. We see Jesus in the mystical presence of Elijah and Moses, witnessed by Peter, James and John shortly before Jesus’ passion and death. Moses is on the right holding the Law. Jerusalem is in the background, and the hand of God is seen in the topmost panel along with what looks like a dove and cloud.
