Duncan Hartley will discuss the church’s rare Tiffany stained glass window of St. George and the Dragonin the Summer Sharing series on Sunday, August 28, at 11:15 a.m. (after the 10 am service) in Fellowship Hall. His title: “My Life Through a Lens: from Shakespeare to St. George.” All are welcome.
“The legend of St. George and the Dragon is simply an allegorical expression of the triumph of the Christian hero, or the church, over evil,” says Hartley. “Having dared to criticize a Roman emperor, St. George was subjected to horrible torture. ”
This window, one of the church’s many beautiful stained glass windows, is the only Tiffany window in Princeton that is not on the Princeton University campus. Located at the corner of Nassau and Vandeventer, PUMC is a diverse congregation whose members come from many surrounding communities, backgrounds, and faith histories. Through Labor Day, worship is at 10 a.m. Beginning September 11, Sunday School for all ages is at 9:30 a.m. and worship is at 9;30 and 11 a.m. (http://www.PrincetonUMC.org).
