In this episode of Sound Vault: Voices, Dr David Lister explains what has led him to seek support for a new stained glass window for St Mary’s Church in Eversley, Hampshire, the design of which he has personally conceived. A fascinating insight into an often overlooked subject.
He expands on some of the central themes behind the design, which he first explored in a podcast last year about his life, called ‘The Particular‘. These are, the importance of being able to recognise what love is really about; celebrating the transformative beauty of love, and emphasising the importance of God’s love too.
If approved, it would take its place in one of the windows at the church where Charles Kingsley was rector for 31 years (1844-1875). Dr David Lister is part of a group planning to put on a festival in 2019 to mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Kingsley’s birth.
