During its absence, the window underwent extensive repairs and restoration. While it was in his shop, Gordon repaired a crack that ran across the image of Bishop Asbury's face, restored an original stenciled border, and releaded the entire window. He also replaced several deteriorated pieces of glass and, upon returning the window, made improvements to the original installation.
John Street will properly celebrate this project's completion and the life and ministry of Bishop Francis Asbury on an upcoming Sunday morning.
