The tower was me thinking about the Luke lectionary passage [Luke 14:25-33].
The stained glass window was me thinking about Leonard Cohen's "there is a crack in everything / that's how the light gets in."
The burning bush in the middle doesn't consciously have anything to do with the sermon I was writing.

the river of blood from the ten plagues
I was going to draw Pharaoh's palace off in the distance, but then I realized I had no idea what Egyptian architecture looked like, and I didn't want to just do pyramids, so I started drawing the generic block+pointed roof, and they got sloppy, so I decided they were common people houses and decided to make them Jewish Israelite Hebrew houses, so I could have the blood on the lintel around the death of the firstborn (the green evokes the pestilence plagues). The gold block in the upper lefthand corner is intended to represent Pharaoh's palace, though.
