First English Evangelical Lutheran Church of Richmond, Virginia
The First English Evangelical Lutheran Church, Southwest corner Monument Avenue and Lombardy Street, Richmond, Virginia. In the front window is seen Luther's Coat of Arms described by him as follows: 'There should be a black cross in the naturally red heart; for from the heart we must believe in the Crucified One in order to be saved; the cross, indeed, causes pain and mortification, yet it does not kill, but rather promotes the vital energy of the heart. Such a heart should stand on a white rose, to show that faith imparts joy, comfort and peace, and it should be white, because that is the color of spirits and of angels, and the joys not of the world. The rose, finally, should be placed in a sky-blue field, as the joy is already the beginning of the heavenly, and is comprehended in hope of heaven, and that field should be encircled by a golden ring, because heavenly salvation endures forever and is valuable above all other possessions.':
