The Covenant Window, located in the Brooks-Howell Home Chapel, was designed by Sylvia Smyth, a resident of Brooks-Howell. Sylvia’s design is inspired by the thread of Covenant Relationship that runs through the Bible. She calls the symbols “Signs of Promise.” In the window we see a dynamic circular movement. To the left, the Creator God initiates with grace the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the gift of God’s Son our Savior. To the right we respond with faith, we are changed and drawn back to our Heavenly Father. We experience the Covenant Relationship in our past, present and future. Brooks-Howell Home’s motto speaks to this: CALLED – SERVED – SERVING STILL.
