Glass and Installation by Renaissance Glass Company - Austin, TX

Explanation of Symbols:

This window is a variation of the Abiding Love Lutheran Church logo.  The STAR announces the birth of a Savior, Jesus Christ, who is "the Light of the World" (John 8:12).  The large, background CROSS depicts the life of Jesus, and the victory won over sin, death, and the power of evil.  The three HEARTS show the love of God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit... God's love for us, our love for God, and our love for all people (3 hearts).  "As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love."
    Jesus Christ (John 15:9)

Special love-offerings from members and friends of Abiding Love have, also, made this window possible.

Steve Essinger has dedicated the fifth, right panel from the top to the memory of Mr. Brian Alamio (April 18, 1952 - April 24, 2006) who died while Steve was working on this panel.  Brian was a mentor for Steve's involvement as an adult leader in Abiding Love's Boy Scout Troop 555.

"Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to the Father in heaven."
    Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:16)
