The upper section shows the Angel of Peace and Hope. In his arms is the Dove of Peace. Doves are often used to symbolize the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the active presence of God in our lives. Our greatest source and assurance of Peace and Hope is by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who promised the following:
Jesus said to his disciples: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The lower section depicts the Annunciation of Mary. The being standing before Mary represents the Spirit of the Lord. (Notice the swirls of midst around his feet). The Holy Spirit told Mary that she would give birth to the Son of God, and He would be called “Emmanuel” which means “God With Us.” The birth of the Savior meant that God’s power would transform people and their attitudes from impossibility to possibility, from doubt into hope, and from darkness into light.
“God sent the angel Gabriel to the village of Nazareth to a virgin engaged to be married to Joseph. Gabriel entered her room and said: “Greetings! The Lord is with you! Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God… You shall give birth to a son, and you shall name him Jesus.”
The Robinson Window was given by Mrs. A. Blaine Robinson and other members of the Robinson family in memory of David (1828-1895) and William Andrew (1830-1902).
