Subject/Title of Window: Easter Window

Brief Description of Subject: This window was fashioned in the London studios of George L Payne artists. The extreme peak depicts four figures facing in four directions bearing the good news. The seated regal figure, robed in  and with outstretched arms, offers the command “Go ye therefore and teach all national”. The left hand panel depicts the Disciples walking to Emmaus Easter afternoon. The lightened lantern symbolizes the Lamp unto our feet”. The crossed mace and arrow represent authority and suffering. He walked with us by the way is the caption. The two center panels depict the Risen Christ before the kneeling Mary. The crown of thrones and the pillar with crossed and the banner symbolize triumph of life over death. The right panel shows Jerusalem in the background and three crosses of which the pressing crowd seems indifferent. It is nothing to you, all ye pass by? (Lamentations 1:12).
