King Window: Upper

In this window, the figure is Christ appearing at the End of Days; it is "the sign of the Son of Man" appearing in the heavens in power. Christ is portrayed with signs of power - a crown and scepter - and with stars falling in a background of darkness, because no sun, nor moon, shall shine in that day.

        "Immediately after the distress of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

        "Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory."

-Matthew 24:29-30

The King Window was dedicated in memory of Robert Hays King (1814-1895), Anna Duff King (1815-1849), and Mary Pauley King (1824-1859).
