Matthew, Mark, and John. This stained glass window is in the Chapel of The Good Shepherd, Christ Episcopal Church. We’ll forego the debate on the full meaning of the sacrificial lamb. I’ve no idea why the saints are represented by animals. I guess we’d need to ask the original artist — probably long gone, as this widow was ‘discovered’ during a building refurb in 2006-7. From the blank pane, it looks like it was going to have a dedication added.
Whatever its history and meaning, the colors are wonderful.
