cross title blank graphic

This is a Christian background theme page based on beautiful stained glass found in many Christian churches.  Throughout its thousand-year history the term "stained glass"  has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches, cathedrals and other significant buildings.   The purpose of a stained glass window is not to allow those within a building to see out or even primarily to admit light but rather to control it.  For this reason stained glass windows have been described as 'illuminated wall decorations'.

Above you see a sample of how a web page title could be inserted into the stained glass title image created for this set.  A blank of the title clip art is in the .zip file below.  If you don't have a graphic program capable of inserting a page title, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.  Below you will find the Christian stained glass graphic divider and bullet designed for this page.  Blank buttons plus samples are included as shown on the page in the zip file.  Christian stained glass coordinating navigation graphics that could be placed at the bottom of each page if appropriate are also included.
