The new Window of Reconciliation in St. John’s Church was blessed on Friday October 27th at 7.30pm. This window, executed by Thomas Denny is the first stained glass window to be commissioned for St. John’s Church in sixty years. Each of the three panels are evocative of the landscape and history of Tralee. This time-lapse video courtesy of Eamonn Campbell shows the installation of the window.
How futile to judge God by human standards. How utterly ridiculous it is to think that we could ever truly know his ways or understand his actions. When we find ourselves in trouble we can become frustrated with God and question his motives all the more. What human foolishness! Be patient. The hand of God will be revealed just when you are about to give up on the greatest, dearest and most loyal friend of all.....
