Southern Baptist seminary turmoil leaves stained glass artists picking up the pieces

FORT WORTH, Texas (RNS) — A pair of stained glass artists in Dallas lost years of potential income when a Baptist seminary canceled a commission for a series of stained glass windows. The windows, which depict leaders of the so-called 'Conservative Resurgence,' had been on display at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The windows were a pet project of Dorothy Patterson, wife of former SWBTS President Paige Patterson, who was fired last year. The new president had them removed and canceled orders for additional windows.
