  1. This stained glass is unbelievably beautiful. I think it appeared on an Ensign cover fairly recently… I wish there was more!

    In Portland, OR, I believe there’s an old LDS chapel with stained glass that’s been boarded over – so sad.

    • I agree Andy – it’s probably my favorite as well. I did not know about the Portland chapel – I wish I had looked into that when I lived there. But there are several others here in the Salt Lake area as well that I have found. Not necessarily nicer than this one, but more stained glass than I ever would have expected to find in LDS meetinghouses.

    there used to be a stained glass depiction of Christ in Gethsemane at the head of a chapel my grandparents helped build. It was removed in the 70s–nothing there but white paint now. Funny the lengths Mormons go to to erase Christ from their worship services.

      Can you please give the address of the church with the chapel that had the Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane window? Is there anything else you can add regarding the looks of the window? Thanks!

    I have what I think is an original door with original hardware from this chapel. Many of my ancestors attended church, were blessed, or had receptions in this chapel so I’m thrilled to have it! It was being put out for trash and we scooped it up! But I’m wondering if you have any info or pictures relating to this? Or maybe know where I could find it? It looks like it may have been used as an outside door at one time. It’s a 5 panel hardwood door. I could always send pictures if you want.
