Christ Amidst the Church—The Rev. Bleakley Window
As you cross the Entrance of St. Timothy's Church, you will pass beneath a stained glass depiction of Christ—Christ the Door, Who is both the Way in and the Way out. The window, called Christ Amidst the Church, is the creation of the Rev. Mark Bleakley who also designed and crafted The Four Gospels window that rests above the reredos mural, The Christ of St. Timothy's by Christina Katrakis.
Christ Amidst the Church portrays St. John's vision that is described in the first chapter of the Revelation:
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters. And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. Revelation 1:12–17 (KJV)
The Christ Amidst the Church window also includes symbols around the periphery that are associated with each of The Twelve Disciples, depicting their martyrdom, mission, or a legend about them. The window was a gift from Woody and Lynda Freeman in memory of Mildred Freeman, Woody's mother, and given to St. Timothy's for the glory of God. The window was installed and dedicated in April of 2012.
