Fish and Glass

Tay Sandoz ’86

April 26, 2017

I remember for many of my formative years enjoying the ability to scan weekly, from my designated pew, the incredible styling of the Thurston Chapel, while meditating on the soft, encouraging voice of Chaplain Heidel. My gaze would inevitably drift from the subtle light and shadow casting out from the cross over the alter, to the assured lava rock walls around, but would always eventually rest on that exquisite juxtaposition of bright pieces of colored stained glass mingling with counterpart flashes from the mesmerizing carp below, free to enter and escape this beautiful place of peace and worship. This Chapel, and its signature Lily Pond spring, are truly the cornerstone of my early Punahou experience.
