The West Window

The West Window (1757)

A quick blog post on this Good Friday, with a photo of a stained glass window from the west wall of St George’s in West Grinstead. I visited last Sunday, and I happened to arrive there soon after the Palm Sunday service finished. The pastor, who also leads the digital photography group, beckoned me over, and kindly showed me around. Today, shortly after I post this, their choir will be singing Fauré’s Requiem in a devotional gathering.

I hope you like this stained glass. From what I gather, it was installed in memory of three fallen soldiers. The central panel shows a soldier kneeling in front of the crucifix, with the risen Christ above.
