Thine, O Lord, Is the Victory

Thine, O Lord, Is the Victory
Tiffany, 1910

On March 27, 1910, the Church bulletin read: "The most striking feature of the window is the lift of the figure, suggested by the position of the head and arms, giving the impression of an upward movement. And this was characteristic of him who is thus held in memory. There was about him an upliftedness, a loftiness of spirit, that made it impossible for him to stoop to anything base. Naturally, simply, and without stain the pull of his life was upward, and those who knew him feel it still."

The flowing robes and Tiffany's luminescent glass give this window a beautiful glow. It was given by Emily Betts Lommis in memory of her husband, Horace Arthur Loomis (1874-1908). In 1912 she married the widowed minister of Third Church, Dr. Paul Moore Strayer, surviving him for many years after his death.
