WHEN Philadelphia architect Hensel Fink designed Grace United Methodist Church on Charles Street, his plans called for a large stained-glass window to be installed above the altar on the eastern end of the sanctuary.Although the church opened in 1951, the stained-glass window was not completed at that time. But the architect's vision for the altar was realized this year when Grace's congregation installed a stained-glass window in the spot reserved for it nearly 50 years ago.The window came from the former Wilson Memorial United Methodist Church at University Parkway and Charles Street, a building whose congregation was merged with Grace's in 1996.
