Mystic theme - Church windows

I like the simplicity of this window in the little Victorian chapel at Brickendon farm in Longford, Tasmania.

This chapel replaced the original one built for convicts who were expected to attend church twice on Sundays. Religion was regarded as essential for the convicts' reformation although the men did not appreciate this concern for their spiritual welfare.

Escape attempts generally occurred on Sundays.

Hahaha...."escape attempts usually occurred on Sundays".....hahaha
Now that I have regained my composure, I would like to say how wonderful your story and photos are of this lovely little Church building. The stained glass windows are magnificent! I can just imagine the light streaming through them lighting the inside of the chapel. Beautifully Photographed!

You know, there is probably some sort of parable that can be made with your last line.
Beautiful and yet rather simple window. Idyllic church, as well. Nice set.
