Windows:  The Chancel

Saint George's has 48 stained glass windows in the narthex, chancel and nave of the church.  To read more about a particular window or view a larger picture, click on one of the thumbnails below.  When these pages are complete they will include an historic background of the scene, biographical information about the subject of the window, notes on the symbolism portrayed in the window, and questions for personal reflection.   For a virtual tour of the entire collection, begin with the Creation window and follow select "next window" at the end of each text.

The Chancel is the part of the church containing the altar and seats for the clergy. These windows cast brilliant color on the altar when the sun is in certain positions.  They have no inscriptions bearing a name as sometimes we know more about the story told than the actual person.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Genesis 1:1,2

Abraham and Sarah
[The LORD said to Abraham], "Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your descendants be." And he believed the LORD; and the LORD reckoned it to him as righteousness.

God called to [Moses] out of the bush, "Moses, Moses!" And he said, "Here I am." Then he said, "Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground." He said further, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob."
Exodus 3:4-6
Ruth and Naomi WindowRuth and Naomi

Ruth 1:16
David WindowDavid
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Psalm 23
Elijah WindowElijah

And it came to pass, as Elijah and Elisha still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
2 Kings 2:11
