 In this photo taken on July 10, 2014, Don Zimmerman describes the steps of making stained glass at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church in Battle Creek, Mich. Zimmerman, who works for the Department of Defense as a training site program manager at the Battle Creek Air National Guard Base, has found solace and a purpose in what began as a hobby and has developed into something a little more. He also teaches stained glass art to a small group of fellow parishioners at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church and he will begin a second year of teaching the craft at the Lifelong Learning Program at Kellogg Community College.
