Subject/Title of Window: Moses and the Burning Bush

Brief Description of Subject: This narthex window, located in the stairway leading up to the choir loft, depicts the scene of "Moses and the Burning Bush" which is found in the third chapter of Exodus.

The sons of Jacob had gone to Egypt to live during a drought and eventually were enslaved by an unfriendly pharaoh. God heard their pleas and wanting to free them from bondage decided to choose Moses to lead them from Egypt to the land he had promised Abraham many years ago. While MOSES, with a SHEPHERD'S CROOK, was tending a flock of sheep, God sent an angel in the form of a BURNING BUSH that was "NOT BEING CONSUMED WITH FIRE .... When the Lord saw that Moses had turned to look at this remarkable sight, GOD CALLED OUT TO HIM FROM THE BURNING BUSH: 'Moses! Moses!' He answered, 'Here I am.' God said: 'Do not come near! REMOVE YOUR SANDALS from your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground. I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' MOSES HID HIS FACE, for he was afraid to look at God." Eventually God convinced a skeptical Moses to be the one to lead the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land.
