The ‘silver’ light of the sun of ancient Latvian poetry is symbolically recreated in the 30 windows of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, built in 1871 in the Neo-Gothic style. The theme is the tri-unity of God: one window series symbolizes ‘God the Father’ while another represents ‘God the Son’. The third set of window on the West side of the sanctuary shows God the Holy Spirit. Smaller windows reflect on the history of the Latvian and Estonian parishioners.
