Observations in Glass

On the way to Whole Foods, adorning the Presbyterian church off 17th street in Tustin, is this amazing stained glass window. I'd love to see what it looks like from the inside, with the sun streaming through. The scale makes me think of the windows in the Chartres cathedral, or any other gothic cathedral for that matter; spanning floor to ceiling I imagine this window would be impressive when fully lit.

When I stopped to get a closer look I was intrigued by this, someone had etched a cross into one of the back panels. I'm always interested in Christian graffiti; how does defacing something convey the message of Christ?
