Subject/Title of Window: The Good Shepherd

Brief Description of Subject: The theme of the three windows in the East balcony is the parables of Jesus. Jesus is shown as the good shepherd, caring for his sheep. This window is an interpretation of the scripture John 10:14-16. From the Flint Daily Journal, Friday, August 30, 1907. p. 2. “…The greatest interest centers around the large windows which have just been placed in position in memory of John and Sarah Webber, who for many years were among the most faithful and helpful members of the church. These windows are of opalescent glass after designs by Schueler & Muelher [sic] of Chicago, by whom they were made and installed. The west window represents the Ascension of Christ and the east window the Good Shepherd.”…

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
