“The stained glass windows at Unity Temple on the Plaza display colors of God’s love in ways we can experience and enjoy. These windows invigorate our minds with scenes and images of spirituality and enliven our hearts with the warmth and colors of the light itself. They translate pieces of great mystery into an experience of elemental joy.” Chuck Wood
The Chancel “Love” window symbolizes the evolution of love in human consciousness. The star’s five points represent prayer, healing, teaching, worship and community. It is one of the few remaining original windows of Unity Temple. The symbolism was outlined by L.E. Meyer, designed by Daniel MacMorris, and commissioned by the Women’s Auxillary in 1950. (Daniel MacMorris painted much of the decorative work in the Nelson Gallery. For more about him …)
The Love Window is one of the original windows from 1950. In 1971 fifty eight windows throughout the Temple were replaced with new designs by Ernest Wilson and Paul Mann.
