A magnificent window

Resurrection stained-glass window in Leawood, Kansas (click to enlarge)
I share with you a fascinating stained glass window located at the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. It was recently installed and is extremely descriptive as I will try to explain some of the features one can notice.  Make sure you click on the photo to enlarge it. Starting from the left side, one can see Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Abraham, Moses, Noah, King David, Naomi, Ruth and Esther, Jacob and Joseph, Sarah with Isaac, Daniel with the lions, birth of Jesus, his baptism, calling of the apostles, Jesus with the children, with the Samaritan woman at the well, the Risen Christ at the center, with Mary Magdalen, with Zacchaeus, instituting the Eucharist, the calling of St Paul, St Peter, St Augustine, St Thomas Aquinas, St Francis, St Dominic, St Teresa of Avila, Luther, St Teresa of Calcutta, St John XXIII, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John Wesley, Patriarch Athenagoras, Martin Luther King, Billy Graham, C. S. Lewis, Rosa Parks, and other Protestant leaders.
This link will take you directly to the window and tells where each character or scene can be seen:
