Eighth Ward (Salt Lake): Stained Glass & Paintings Detail

The windows lining the chapel are almost exactly the same.

At the front of the chapel is the painting titled The Straight and Narrow Way, designed and donated by John M. Chamberlain, a choir director from the Eighth Ward who wrote the hymn, "We Are Marching on to Glory."

It pictures Christ leading the way on the straight and narrow path (which symbolically leads to Temple Square, as you can see below). Also pictured are those falling from the path, humble disciples who follow Christ, and some wandering off to a dark landscape in the back.

The other painting is a large image of Daniel in the Lion's Den.

Finally, here are some close shots of the stained glass above the north entrance:
