The Artist Behind the New Stained Glass

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Rich Buswell, senior artist and designer with Lynchburg Stained Glass of Lynchburg, Va. Lynchburg is installing new stained glass windows in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. Work on the windows began in 2017. The windows are being installed throughout the entirety of the chapel—chancel, transept, nave and narthex—thanks to a generous gift from the Eugene E. and Nell S. Fincke Memorial Trust. The theme of the windows is the Te Deum Laudamus (Latin: Holy God, We Praise Your Name), a historic text of praise to God. “The content in all of these windows is rich, theologically, biblically rich,” Meyer says. “These windows are making a generational impact upon the Seminary, especially upon the generations of students, professors and staff who are going to sit in that chapel. Thanks to you, the donors, and everyone who has worked on this project. Through the church the beauty will go on.” All of the windows, except those on the north side of the chapel, have been installed. Work is progressing on the final design for those windows.

Paul Raabe reflects on the label “Lutheran” and how, in some contexts, it does not communicate to most Americans. We need to be able to explain ourselves to outsiders in ways intelligible to them. Maybe a church sign should say: “A Gospel-Baptism-Lord’s Supper-Bible-Creedal-Liturgical Church - Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.” These descriptions are the markers of our church body.
