Friday Church Window Blogging

For the next few Fridays I will be posting pictures of the Tiffany glass windows at First Presbyterian Church in Orange, Texas that I took last week at the presbytery meeting.

This is the Good Shepherd window. After this week of Hurricane-Katrina related concerns as evacuees have streamed into the Houston area and we have tried to find ways to help them, we need to be reminded of the promises of the 23rd Psalm.

Notice the elaborate arched window and the cross placed behind the figure of Christ so that it almost looks like a mere wooden beam. In the distance there is a rugged landscape rather than a tranquil pastoral scene.

Beautiful window! I like the cross and the landscape that you've pointed out.
