STAINED GLASS WINDOWS
Most churches have stained glass windows of varying degrees of beauty and craftmanship
with biblical scenes but at the Groome United Methodist Church in Lewes, Delaware there is a
distinct local touch.
That is a nautical atmosphere in keeping with Lewes; ancient ties to the nearby Atlantic
Ocean and the towns headquarters for the pilots which take ocean going ships up the Delaware
River to Phildelphia.
Groome Church is 75 years ld and the stained glass windows were recently restored. One
of the nautical scenes depicts a lighthouse keeper headed for his station on the Breakwater, another
shows the Overfalls Lightship, once a beacon at sea for passing ships.
