This past weekend I attended a memorial service at a Methodist church in the town where I grew up. I had forgotten how beautiful the stained glass windows were in this church. It was built in 1901 by a boat builder and has gorgeous woodworking on the ceiling and around the windows.
Although my pictures can't possibly do justice to these windows, I wanted to share them with you anyway.
This scripture was used as part of the lovely service.
A Time for Everything
|1||To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:|
|2||a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;|
|3||a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;|
|4||a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;|
|5||a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;|
|6||a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;|
|7||a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;|
|8||a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.|
