The Rainbow by Louisa Harrop, Head of Learning
I am continually amazed that each time I gaze at the beautiful windows I gain a new insight and often identify something which I have never seen before. When working with school children, I am often asked what my favourite thing or part of the windows is. The list is lengthy, but my response is the rainbow, seen in the Last Judgement window. The rainbow is rich in colour and carefully placed at the foot of Christ. Its symbolism powerfully conveys a clear and important Christian message. The message of hope. Often visitors haven’t spotted the rainbow as it is easy not to see at first. Once they see it a shared dialogue beings.
