Where Everyone is Welcome
Knox is a Presbyterian Church that congregates on Sunday mornings to explore and discuss our Christian faith. We often relate sermons and fellowship to current events that are both local and global in scale.
Most importantly, we believe in social justice, community, and compassion. Our doors are open to everyone. Knox is a place of sanctuary; where you are embraced for being your authentic self.

When I went to Bermuda in 1992, I had the fortune of planning a Sesquicentennial celebration for the Church. They decided to install a new organ and two new stained glass windows to celebrate their anniversary. We were able to commission the windows from a Bermudian Artist.
The window was meant to depict 6 different ways that St. Andrew's had been involved in mission work through its 150 years. The words nec tamen cosumebator can be seen in red at the bottom. These are the very words from the scene in Exodus when Moses notices the burning bush, and notes that it burns but is not consumed.
Many leaves can be seen in the window as they climb from bottom to top encircling the 3 scenes in each glass panel. The leaves, as they rise, go from a darker green to light green to yellow to red.
At the very top you will see a bowl with folded hands in it. It is from a description in the Apocalypse where John notes that the prayers of the saints rise like incense to god. Here, the actions of the Church in being present in the community witness, testify, incarnate the presence of god in the community, and those actions, like incense rise like prayer and praise.
Aspen trees and leaves are common in Alberta, though the red is not common. We thought of using the Aspen leaves, along with the idea that Vivienne developed when making the St. Andrew's window and the leaves changing from green to red. The fact that there are three relates to our number of Core Values.
The graphic artist that pulled them together on a design we experimented with was Carrie May, my wife's niece who works out of Cornwall, England.
