The Dio­cese of Lon­don

The Church of England - - News -

A stained glass win­dow com­mis­sioned for LSE’s new Faith Cen­tre, de­pict­ing a strik­ing desert scene, was for­mally ded­i­cated by the Bishop of Lon­don on Mon­day. The Rt Rev Richard Chartres ded­i­cated the win­dow, de­signed by the Pres­i­dent of the Royal Academy, Christo­pher Le Brun, to re­flect the an­cient tra­di­tion of the desert as a sym­bol of spir­i­tual sig­nif­i­cance in world reli­gions. The in­stal­la­tion was pos­si­ble by a £25,000 gift from the par­ents of an alum­nus, Mburu Kiere­ini, who died in Au­gust 2010. LSE Chap­lain, the Rev Dr James Wal­ters, said: “The stained glass win­dow re­flects the im­age of the desert as a place of pro­found re­li­gious in­ten­sity, from the an­cient Hindu tra­di­tions to the ori­gins of the Judeo-Chris­tian faith at Si­nai.”
