View Stained Glass at the Washington National Cathedral

Join Barbara to view the wonders of the stained glass art of the Washington National Cathedral.  The stained glass windows of the Cathedral tell biblical stories of faith as well as those of American history. From founding fathers to astronauts to farmers… American values and spiritual principles are beautifully magnified as the sunlight illuminates these gorgeous jewels.

Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture the kaleidoscopic colors! From gargoyles to 215 stained glass windows, end your tour with more photos than you can count, and a true appreciation of the artistry of the stained glass windows. See how this sacred art incorporates a moon rock, a piece of the wailing wall, animals, and American landscape.

For Barbara, one of the most interesting and important sites in D.C. is the U.S. Capitol… since our country’s humble beginnings, our ‘Temple of Democracy’ has been the stage for many, often cantankerous, debates over issues that have shaped our lives and give us all an opportunity to pursue our dreams! She’d love for you to join her on a tour of the U.S. Capitol, so she may share with you intriguing bits of history as well as stories of a few fascinating mysteries of this most recognized building in the world!
