GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A Christian university in Michigan plans a dedication ceremony for a chapel featuring stained glass windows created by a Danish artist.

Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids commissioned the four windows from Peter Brandes to be the hallmark feature of the 1,450-seat Christ Chapel, which is being dedicated Monday.

The school says the chapel incorporates a design that will draw worshippers to Christ with a deliberate sense of awe, transcendence, inspiration and intimacy.

The windows mark the north, south, east and west walls of the sanctuary. Brandes has said the light will invigorate worshippers when the sun fills the room with color. The glass pieces were made in Lyon, France, specifically for the project under Brandes’ supervision.

Cornerstone is an independent, non-denominational Christian liberal arts university.
