The Man On The Bed Window

Stained Glass Window

Some people involved with Akron Intergroup and the Akron A.A. Archives had the inspiration to make the painting "The Man on the Bed" into a stained glass window. The finished project fills the whole front window of the Intergroup office (see below) and was done in time for Founders Day weekend, 2001. The Four Absolutes (Honesty, Purity, Unselfishness, and Love) are on the four sides and the picture is bordered by sobriety medallions contributed by many local members and set into the glass. This is truly a work of love and dedication, and many people helped by adding a few pieces whenever they could. In the evening, with the light of the setting sun coming through the panels, it was breathtaking. If you're in the area be sure to stop in and see this, and the Archives ( too!
