Transformation: Light and Glass

Today I'm thinking about light and how we receive it.  I'm thinking about stained glass windows and other kinds of sun catchers.

Colored glass fascinates me; it transforms the light into something less harsh, yet perhaps more brilliant.

Colored glass lets the light through while transforming it into something else.  We might say that Christ did this too:  his life let God's light shine, while at the same time transforming it into something that could be understood.  How can our lives do the same?

How can our art do the same?
