This is the stained glass window above the entrance to the Annex of First Presbyterian Church of Bakerstown. It incorporates a Celtic cross in its design.
In a Presbyterian (or any other Reformed) Church one will not usually find a Crucifix hanging behind the Chancel, instead there will be an altar cross, either on the communion table or on a table in the chancel. By using the "empty" cross, or cross of the resurrection, Presbyterians emphasize the resurrection and that Christ is not continually dying, but died once and is alive for all eternity. Presbyterian church buildings are often decorated with Celtic crosses. This not only emphasizes the resurrection, but also acknowledges historical aspects of Presbyterianism, which grew out of Scotland.
Bu Bakerstown Birinci Presbiteryen Kilisesinin Ek Binası girişinin üstündeki vitray penceredir. Deseninde bir Kelt haçı içerir.
Bir Presbiteryen (veya başka bir Reform) Kilisesi'nde, genellikle şansel arkasında asılı bir Hazreti İsa figürlü haç bulamazsınız; onun yerine komünyon masasında veya şanselde bir masa üzerinde bir sunak haçı bulunur. "Boş" haç veya diriliş haçı kullanarak, Presbiteryenler dirilişi ve Mesih'in sürekli ölmediğini, fakat bir kez ölüp sonsuza kadar hayatta olduğunu vurgularlar. Presbiteryen kilise binaları genellikle Kelt haçları ile dekore edilmiştir. Bu hem dirilişi vurgular, hem de İskoçyadan çıkan Presbyterianismin tarihsel cephesini simgeler.

You're capturung well one feather of this Presbyterian Church by a good macro and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the stained glass window with a good geometrical design and a Celtic cross. It's interesting to hear the thought that "Presbyterians emphasize the resurrection and that Christ is not continually dying, but died once and is alive for all eternity", although I do not have knowledge in Christianity.

Exquisite clear shot, Murat.
One can count every red-brick on the facade in pic., and the wrought-iron on the window.
A fine photojob done, cheers.

A very nice crop of the facade on the front of the church. Excellent sharpness and clarity show detail of the brickwork and the leaded widow to their best advantage. Have a good day.
