Front Cover:
Detail from “May powers be as incense ... Psalm 141,” a stained glass window in the Jones Prayer Room, Westbrook Building, by artist Les Wicker. The offering of incense as a metaphor for prayer occurs in several scriptures as well as Psalm 141. Wicker began witha a vertical shape and created colorful upward movement to heavenly and starry blues symbolizing the ascent of our prayers to God.
