Stained Glass, Grace United Methodist Church, Wilmington, DE
I have a habit of taking pictures of stained glass that I find interesting.  I attended a concert here recently, and I was struck by this particular window: an angel, holding what looks to be roses in one hand and something (holly branches?) in the other, with a clock face for the background.
I’m sure there’s some kind of symbolism here, but I’m racking my brain and can’t for the life of me figure out what it might be.  Anyone out there know what this might represent?
