 The Stained Glass Windows of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles

 

A continuing work from commission (1932) to final installation (1952)  by the Judson Studios of Pasadena, these beautiful stained glass windows were a memorial to our faith, our progress and our people.  I will be citing from two primary sources for the information in this article.  The first is a dedicatory folio that was created shortly after the installation and gives the names of the people for whom the windows were dedicated and a small piece of information from that folio.  Next, the reader will be able to see a more detailed article, which was given to those who gave guided tours.  In the archival box, we found black and white photographs of the windows, but very few colored photos.  Due to the distance between the floor and the windows, it is difficult to obtain a good clear shot of the windows, even with today's technology, but I will include an attempt to get at least a shot showing the colors in these beautiful windows.  The best way to see them is, of course, in person.   There is no author identified on either of the two sources.  The folio represents how the windows were perceived.  The later article depicts how the windows were finally achieved.  Each, in it's own way, tells a wonderful story of what these windows represent.  I am going to list the wonderful  donors of the windows  who made it all possible under the newer book since it gives the detailed description of the window itself.

Some of the windows change colors depending on the time of day and the amount of sun shining directly on the windows.  All are in vivid deep blues, reds, yellows and greens.  I think the dedication presentation identifies it most clearly.  It called the windows "The Ministry of Light".  Although not included in this article, be sure and also visit Shatto Chapel and see the beautiful old tiffany glass window, which was brought over from our former church.  It is a wonderful example of the old-style stained glass that you see in some of the country churches throughout America.

For those who want to read more about Judson Studios, click on the name and it will take you to their website.  To come back to this website, click on your back arrow, or bookmark this web page and come back regularly.  The reader might also want to visit The Stained Glass Association of America's website for a concise history of stained glass.  There are other wonderful web links that I will try to add as I identify them.

According to a news article in the Los Angeles Times, dated 6 July 1952, the final window was installed in that year.  The church was dedicated in 1932, at which time Judson Studios in Pasadena were commissioned to create and install the stained glass windows.

The "Jesse Tree" window, the last in the series, was said to portray the genealogy of Jesus and was one of nine clerestory windows to have been installed.  The South windows depict the hand of God moving through man in the form of Queen Isabella, the Pilgrim families, Benjamin Franklin, thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln, Hugo Grotius, Padre Junipero Serra, Senator Benton and John Fremont.  The Clerestory windows on the north are devoted to the Old Testament, depicting the Creation, the Patriarchs, the Profits and the Jesse Tree of Christ.

In May of that year, the north transept window, devoted to the Old Testament was installed.  This window was said to measure 16 feet by 30 and required two years to create. It was created out of about 27,000 bits of pot-metal and antique, hand-blown glass.  It is said that each piece of glass had to be handled 15 times in the process of constructing a window. 

The article goes on to indicate that Judson Studios installed the sanctuary window, the Life of Christ, in 1933 in addition to two chancel windows, one devoted to the youth of Jesus and one devoted to the adult ministry of Jesus, which was completed between 1946-47.  The six aisle windows, depicting the miracles of Christ were installed during 1932-33, as was the Rose window over the entrance which depicted "Christ the King" enthroned in glory.

In the sections below, the reader will see photos of the windows as shown to the prospective donors along with the names of the persons to whom they were dedicated.  Next, the reader will see black and white renditions of the windows which will show the details of each window, both as a whole, and dividing each section of the individual windows.  Along with that will be a narration of what each window depicts.  This narration was used in the VHS video of "The Windows of First Church", which was created some years ago.  The church may still have a few copies left for a nominal cost should someone wish to purchase one.  If not, then if enough interest is shown, they may be convinced to do a new one in DVD format.  Some of the windows are depicted on the DVD of the Great Organs, most especially the Good Shepherd window which was brought over from an earlier church.

Finally, I will show the reader some color photos of the windows taken as a digital camera shot from the old video.  I will warn you in advance that the photos are somewhat poor quality, but it is difficult to get a full-on shot of the windows without using special photographic equipment and scaffolding to raise you high enough to get a close photo.  Unfortunately, I do not possess equipment of this caliber and I do not go up onto scaffolding, being over the age of 60 and doddering, if not undaunted.

According to the folio, "Stained glass is one of the oldest, most dignified and honored forms used to perpetuate among the living, the influence of departed loved ones.  The beauty of the art windows of First Congregational Church is enhanced by our memories of those to whom they are an enduring tribute..."  "Each object of beauty follows a plan, and so it is with the art windows of our Sanctuary.  Just as the individual window tells a story of its own, so the combination of all the windows will tell the great story of the Bible and of the church in the modern age."

It goes on to say, "The thrilling history that is the Old Testament will one day be made manifest by the art windows on the north wall of the Sanctuary. (Remember, this was written before the windows were installed).  From the triple lancet window of the transept will shine the highlights of Jewish history.  the other windows of that wall will interpret Jewish history from the time of the Creation of the Christian Era, which is introduced by the Jesse Window--the genealogy of Christ.....The three jewelled windows of the Chancel speak to us of Christ.  The fifteen medallions of the east window depict the life of Christ, while His youth and adult ministry are disclosed by the north and south chancel windows.  The trefoil at the top of the east window is symbolic of the Trinity.   The miracles of Christ are illustrated in the aisle windows of the Sanctuary."  

The folio states that Isaiah 1:9 was chosen as the guiding scripture for the stained glass of our church.  "Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom and we should have been like unto Gomorrah."  .  .The manifestation of God through "the very small remnant" was to be depicted by the south windows.  At completion, they were to tell us of the Christian Era--from the Apostolic Period to the future."

In speaking of "The Ministry of Light", the folio indicated that the art windows of First Congregational Church of Los Angeles has received awards and recognition on numerous occasions.  It was said that when the windows were completed that the church will be "an outstanding medium for the presentation of fine stained glass and for the inspiration which that art affords to many."  They went on to say that "awareness of these potentialities presents a challenge to speed completion of all the windows to that our ministry of light may reach perfection.  At the time of this publication, it said that the eight remaining clerestory windows and the triple lancet window of the north transept was the final portion of the art windows in the sanctuary and that there were eight windows remaining to be installed in Shatto Chapel.  They were still taking donations to complete the project when this booklet was printed.

The Shatto Chapel, was named in honor of the Shatto family,  Clara R (Whitney) Shatto(1853 - 1942) and George Shatto,   who donated to First church.  George Shatto  owned Santa Catalina Island in the late 1800s,) "The Good Shepherd Window" was installed in this chapel along with portions of the earlier pipe organ.  This window was originally installed in the Hope Street Church and was moved to its present location in 1932.  The west panel is dedicated to the memory of Frances Clark Howard.  The center panel is dedicated to Edward and Clarissa Bosbyshell and the east panel is dedicated to Andrew H. Verberg.  The eight panels placed below the other was intended to perpetuate the memory of many early members of the church.

The original commission to create these beautiful windows was let to Judson Studios.  The six aisle windows depicting the miracles of Christ were installed during 1932-33 as was the Rose window over the entrance.  The North Transept window was installed in May of 1952.  The window measures 16 feet by 30 and required two years to make.  It consists of approximately 27,900 bits of pot-metal, and  antique hand-blown glass.  According to a Los Angeles Times article of the period, The last of the windows, the Jesse Tree window,  was finally installed on July 6, 1952.

These next links will take you to the original folio (with comments), the black and white shots of the windows, the narrative written about the windows and used by former tour guides, and finally, where possible, color shots of the windows. (B&W =  black and white - C = color). The first page you should review i the map of the chancel, which shows where each window is located. The windows are broken up by what the window represents, and in some cases, into individual segments. I will attempt to set up my links to match the tour dialogue, which follows next. (written, I believe, by Dr. Donald B Ward, former Sr. Minister of First Church.)

CHANCEL WINDOWS - As errors are discovered, they will eventually be replaced.

The central window is the Chancel is the Life of Christ Window. The Mystic Trifoil at the top depicts the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. At the top of the Trifoil are the numbers Alpha and Omega.

The rich blues of the Old Testament window portrays the steadfast faith of the Jews and their belief in one God and also their gentle philosophy and their eruditeness. It is also intended to signal in muted tones of the Glory of God. The window is dedicated to the high points of Judaism as depicted in the Old Testament.

CLERESTORY WINDOWS

(The Celestory is that part of the church high up the walls at either side.) There are nine clerestory windows and they are called "Jeweled Faith on high." The four north Clerestory windows are devoted to the Old Testament teachings from the Creation through the Patriarchs to the coming of Christ. The one nearest to the Chancel is the Creation Window in memory of J. M. Slattery, Nancy Slattery and Hans Fugl by Mrs Fugl.

North Clerestory Windows

The first north Clerestory window - from lower to upper.

(1) At the base "And the evening and the morning were the first day...and God made the firmament." The world is shown as a void over the moving waters, with dividers indicating the firmament; the Creation of the first and second day.

(2) The third day - The land is divided from the waters and the earth yields herbs and fruit. The stars and the moon and the sun rule the night and the day with a greater and a lesser light on the fourth day.

(3) "And God created every living creature that moveth and blessed them; Be fruitful and multiply." The fifth day. "And God created man in his own image after our likeness "

(4) and the Lord created Adam"--he formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed life into him, the breath of life and man became a living soul."

(5) Adam and Eve are expelled from the Garden of Eden. The tree of Life is marked by a flaming sword. Eve with her child is forever subject to "I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband and he shall rule over thee." (Genesis 3:16) And Adam digs the soil in fulfillment of the words: "In the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread.

The second of the North Clerestory windows is The Patriarch's Window, the gift of Mrs. Edna S. Osborne.

(2) Daniel rejoices over the fall of Nebuchadnezar's image of gold and the triumph of the Most High God. (Daniel 2:35)

(3) The Prophet Ezekiel stands among the captives by the river of Chebar as the heavens open for him to see a vision of God. In the midst of a great whirlwind of fire and cloud are four living creatures, each having four faces and four wings. "And the Lord spoke unto Ezekiel and called him for a prophet. (Exodus 1:1)

(4) Jeremiah is visited in jail by Zedekiah, the puppet ruler for Nebuchadnezzar and predicts his downfall. (Jeremiah 21:7)

(5) The purging of the iniquity of Isaiah as the Seraphim places a live coal from off the altar upon the lips of Isaiah. (Isaiah 6:2)

The fourth north Clerestory window is a memorial to Mrs Mary M. Kern and is called the Tree of Jesse Window. This is one of the most beautiful windows and is designed to portray the human spiritual ancestry of our Lord stemming from Jesse.

South Clerestory Windows

The theme of the five south Clerestory windows depicts God's power made manifest in the lives of men and women such as Queen Isabella, the Pilgrim Families, Historians, inventive genius, soldiers and scholars.

The window nearest the Chancel is the Missionary Window, a memorial to L. Helena and Frederick Wilson. It is dedicated to the living power of God; the men who have caught and reflected some of the glory of our Lord, men who stand as beacons in the growth and westward movement of Christianity form the living light of this window.

Gothic or Builders Window

The second window from the chancel is the Gothic, or Builder's Window, given in memory of Mary Williams by her husband, R. H. Williams, and their daughter, Gertrude. Here is shown the devout zeal of men who built to the glory of God and carried the banner of Christianity to the News World.

(1) In the medallion at the base, Saint Louis, King of France (1095) walks barefoot through the streets of Paris carrying on a cushion a crown of thorns after his return from the Crusades. At his right is shown the hermit monk St. Bernard, who conceived the idea of the Crusades and inflamed all of Europe with the religious zeal of the moment.

(2) The great monk, Theophilus (1175 A. D.) is shown here. He not only created windows for the Cathedrals of medieval France but wrote a magnificent treatise on working in the precious metals, stained glass, oil painting and other allied art.

(5) The top lancet portrays Columbus appealing to Queen Isabella for funds, and she is shown opening her chest of jewels which will provide the money to outfit the little fleet of three tiny ships which were to sail the broad seas and open new horizons for Christianity.

Third from the chancel is the Pilgrim Faith Window given by Dr. William P. Burke as a memorial to Sarah K. Burke. There is no greater example of faith than the story of the Pilgrim fathers who founded America. It is the story of the translation of the Christian religion across the high seas from Europe to the New World where religious faith and freedom were the basis for a new nation, conceived under God.

(1) The lowest medallion shows the arrest at Plummer's Hall in England of those taking part in the Separatist movement which forced the little band to seek a new land in which to worship freely.

The California Window

The fourth of the south clerestory windows is The California Window, the memorial gift of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Nash. In this window we watch the fever of the western movement of Christianity across the continent and around the Horn; the great determination of a young nation, under God, to declare the dignity of men and to carry forth the Light of the World, as a precious flame of beauty and freedom.

(4) Next above shows a great surge of humanity moving by Conestoga wagon across the buffalo plains, kneeling at prayer to thank God for their safe journey (1840 A. D.) By campfire the small field organ was set up and hymns of priase were sung (this one will need to be redone as it is fuzzy)

(5) At the top is the beautiful ship "Flying Cloud" (1849 A. D.) with full sails set for the West, as it sailed around the Horn.

The New World Window

The fifth or last of the South Clerestory Windows is the New World Window, a tribute to the Radio Ministry from Evensong Listeners and dedicated to Dr. Fifield's first eighteen years of radio broadcasting. It is called the Evensong Window. Here is set forth a clear concept of man and his close relation to other men. Individuals humbly acknowledge the source of their great gifts and lead their fellowmen to greater understanding. They are statesmen and scientists of vision.

(1) At the base are Dr. Robert Milliken (1900), the great Physicist of the California Institute of Technology, Dr. Louis Pasteur and Dr. Alexis Carrel, noted doctors.

(2) Here we see Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Ghandi and Jean Jacques Rousseau (one source says Leo Tolstoy), the great spokesmen for Freedom and the abolition of slavery, exponents of man's individual dignity before God. In the backgroound a hand holds a torch.

(3) Thomas Alva Edison and the gifts of light, radio, motion pictures and television. He holds his first successful incandescent lamp.

(4) Freedom of the air dedicated to the Wright Brothers (1903) and the airplane. They are launching a large model of their plane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In the background is a modern descendant of that first plane and the memorial statue at Kitty Hawk.

(5) At the top are the Statesmen: Hugo Grotius, who proclaimed the freedom of the seas, Winston Churchill, who would defend freedom with blood, sweat and tears; and Woodrow Wilson, whose ideal was to secure freedom by international brotherhood This window depicts New World personages outstanding in the fields of science literature, law, medicine, and men of purpose who have used their abilities to serve God and Men.

 

The Aisle Windows

The compassion Christ held for men was made manifest by the miracles which He wrought in their behalf The suffering and sorrow of others was as a personal pain to Him and at every opportunity He gave His aid to those who were distressed. The six aisle windows of the Sanctuary commemorate the miracles performed by our Lord. Each window is made up of three medallions. The lower medallion of all portrays Christ's power over nature, the middle medallion shows his power over evil spirits and the top one displays his power over death and sickess.
