Rainbow Prayers

 

RAINBOW PRAYERS by Dr Iain Galbraith and Rev Elizabeth Houston is a little book offered as a window into the wonders of Scottish stained-glass and it's power to lift our hearts and minds to the glory of God - and into a constant awareness of His presence with each one of us.  The idea for such a volume grew independently in their minds, and for different reasons. Iain's love for stained-glass and he ever-growing knowledge of the artists who design and install it, has been with im for many, many years and most of the photographs in the book are his.  For Liz, the stained-glass of any kirk, is iconic of that kirk's life and witness and he power of words andimages together, become reminiscent of the story-telling stained-glass of the great medieval catherdrals, reaching  out to worshippers, very few of whom were able to read.


The meditations are presented in the order in which they were written. On each page you will find the represntation of a stained-glass window, its designer and its wherabouts.  Facing it, you will find a Scripture verse relating to the image on the stained-glass, followed by a short meditation, sometimes a prayer, sometimes a psalm, sometimes simply a reflection born from studying the window.
